Morecambe and Wise
Eric-Morecambe-Ernie-Wise-xxlarge.jpg

Eric Morecambe (John Eric Bartholomew, 14 May 1926 28 May 1984) and Ernie Wise (Ernest Wiseman, 27 November 1925 21 March 1999), known as Morecambe and Wise (also Eric and Ernie), were an iconic British comic double act, working in variety, radio, film and most successfully in television. Their partnership lasted from 1941 until Morecambe's death in 1984. The show was a significant part of British popular culture, and they have been described as "the most illustrious, and the best-loved, double-act that Britain has ever produced".

In a list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes drawn up by the British Film Institute in 2000, voted for by industry professionals, The Morecambe and Wise Show was placed 14th. In September 2006, they were voted by the general public as number 2 in a poll of TV's 50 Greatest Stars and in 2011 their early career was the subject of the television biopic Eric and Ernie. In 2013, the two were honoured with a blue plaque at Teddington Studios where their last four series were recorded.

Morecambe and Wise - Bring Me Sunshine


"Bring Me Sunshine" is a song written in 1966 by the composer Arthur Kent, with lyrics by Sylvia Dee, and first performed by American artists in the late 1960s. In the UK, the song is synonymous with the popular comedy duo Morecambe & Wise, after it was adopted as their signature tune in their second series for the BBC in 1969.
