Abstract:

Unearthed in a producer's vault, this British comedy gem is the only taped record of the groundbreaking 1960s comedy revue. A 1964 gala farewell performance of the famous stage revue by its original cast, it has never been released on home video. Four men from Oxford (Alan Bennett studying history & Dudley Moore on a music scholarship) and Cambridge (Jonathan Miller studying medicine & Peter Cook taking languages) were invited to present a comedy revue at the Edinburgh Festival in 1960. This led to a London production and then moved on to Broadway-- and their style of satire and parody became a major influence on comedy and comedians.
