A Magic Charity Night Fundraiser is always popular. Laurel and Hardy were a comedy double act during the early Classical Hollywood era of American cinema with the team composed of English thin man Stan Laurel (1890–1965) and American fat man Oliver Hardy (1892–1957).

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 bully Hardy.
Their 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.
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.
The catchphrase most used by Laurel and Hardy on film is:
“Well, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten me into!” with phrase earlier used by W. S. Gilbert in both The Mikado from 1885 and The Grand Duke from 1896.
It was first used by Hardy in The Laurel-Hardy Murder Case in 1930.
In popular culture the catchphrase is often misquoted as:
“Well, here’s another fine mess you’ve gotten me into.”
The misquoted version of the phrase was never used by Hardy and the misunderstanding stems from the title of their film Another Fine Mess. (Wikipedia)
