Video 2×1: Peter Cook & Dudley Moore

1. Peter Cook & Dudley Moore – Music Lesson – Seems to be from the Australian tour of ’71 as far as I can see. No matter, a fantastic sketch.

In 1971, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore toured Australia with their new show Behind the Fridge. It was so successful that they turned part of the show into a TV special, which was recorded in Melbourne in November of the same year. It was believed the tapes of this show had been lost, but they were discovered, almost a decade ago, in “some rarely-consulted corner of an Australian television archive.” These “lost tapes” were then packaged together and shown on Australian and British TV.

2 . Dudley Moore sings Britten and Weill – one after the other, you understand … The Weill parody is one of his best, in my opinion.
