Mar 8, 2019 3:10pm EST | The Abbott and Costello Fan Club and Author Ron Palumbo present Remembering Abbott and Costello
About this event:
“From their legendary “Who’s On First?” routine to their classic cinematic meetings with the Andrews Sisters as well as Frankenstein, Dracula and the Wolf Man, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello are iconic figures in American popular culture and one of the most beloved comedy teams in history.
Join the founder of the Abbott and Costello Fan Club (and author of three books on the immortal comedy team) for a look at the laughs and lives of Abbott and Costello.
We’ll trace their education in comedy’s most demanding school, burlesque, to their rise to Hollywood’s top box office stars, and their conquest of early television.
But there was more to these funny men than met the eye. We’ll also learn about their sometime tragic personal lives, as well as their magnificent charitable work selling War Bonds and combating juvenile delinquency. ” (New York, NY)
