Eric And Little Ern

This show ran in 2013/14 and is no longer touring.

A moving, affectionate and fantastically funny homage to the greatest comedy double act that Britain has ever seen.

The show vividly brings back the warm memories of a bygone era recreating some of the finest moments of Eric and Ernie’s television and stage performances. Some of the most cherished moments from the archives sit alongside new material, together making a brilliant comedy that recreates the all-ages appeal of Morecambe and Wise in their heyday.

Creators and performers Ian Ashpitel and Jonty Stephens are seasoned stage and TV actors with a wide range of credits from Shakespeare’s Globe to Lead Balloon, whilst director Owen Lewis most recently staged solo shows for Suggs, Mrs Moneypenny and Hardeep Singh Kohli; previous stage credits include the West End and international hit Pete and Dud: Come Again.
