What would life be without a touch of magic at Xmas – or any time of year? Laurel and Hardy were a comedy double act during the early Classical Hollywood era of American cinema. The team was composed of thin Englishman Stan Laurel (1890–1965) and heavyset American Oliver Hardy (1892–1957).
Laurel and Hardy History
They became well known during the late 1920s through the mid-1940s for their slapstick comedy, with Laurel playing the clumsy and childlike friend of the pompous Hardy. The duo’s signature tune is known variously as ‘The Cuckoo Song’, ‘Ku-Ku’, or ‘The Dance of the Cuckoos’.
It was played over the opening credits of their films and has become as emblematic of the duo as their bowler hats. Laurel and Hardy humour was highly visual with slapstick used for emphasis. They often had physical arguments with each other (in character), which were quite complex and involved cartoon violence, and their characters precluded them from making any real progress in the simplest endeavours.
Much of their comedy involves milking a joke, where a simple idea provides a basis from which to build multiple gags without following a defined narrative. We all remember the catchphrase most used by Laurel and Hardy on film: “Well, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten me into!” (Wikipedia).
