This heartfelt drama tells the story of Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise’s formative years in show business growing from child stars
into national treasures
“Big head, short legs” was Eric Bartholomew’s first impression of Ernie Wiseman, but their friendship endured and after encouragement by his well-meaning but determined mother, Sadie, Eric became the funny man to Ernie’s feed.
After a successful stint in children’s variety, they worked their way up the ladder of live performance, but after a disastrous television debut in the series Running Wild, Morecambe and Wise learned to trust their own instincts and just make people laugh.
