Double acts we have known and loved (or possibly loathed)

20/03/2009

In Episode 16 of BSB, we got to talking about a well-known double act, whose personal lives have been almost as colourful as their wardrobe:

So, by way of a tenuous link, we thought it would be interesting to incorporate the twinset theme into our next episode – ie. which were the greatest double acts of all time?

Some people might say these two deserve to be crowned kings of the two-person pantheon:

467

Others would opt for a more heavyweight duo (or more comical, depending on your point of view):

As trusted listeners to BSB, what do you think? Which funny man / straight man or good cop / bad cop pairings have achieved true greatness in the long history of a couple of people doing stuff together?

WHO WE’D LIKE TO SEE MORE – AND LESS – OF IN 2009

The Bullshit Bingo team discuss their most and least favouritest people of 2008, and they include this pair –

– not that they’re actually a ‘pair’ in the, say, Morecombe And Wise sense. Although, thinking about it, they could both do with some work right now, so it wouldn’t be such a bad idea.

Anyway, yes, Mr President and Mr Brand are two of our choices. But can you guess which of the ‘more’ or ‘less’ categories they fall into, and why? Aha! You’ll have to listen to Episode 14 to find out.
