Abbott and Costello - Get ready to laugh out loud with the most popular comedy duo of all time. William (Bud) Abbott and Lou Costello were an American comedy duo whose work in radio, film and television made them one of the most popular teams in the history of comedy. One of radio's most popular comedy teams, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello began their 30-year partnership in 1929, with Abbott serving as the perfect straight man and Costello as the bumbling, wisecracking man-child. The Abbott and Costello Show mixed comedy with musical interludes, and was best known for their popular and influential routine, "Who's on First?" This rapid-fire word play and comprehension confusion set the preponderant framework for most of their best-known routines. From 1942 to 1947, the duo enjoyed huge success in movies and on radio, where The Abbott & Costello Show was a Thursday night fixture on NBC. The pair broadcast for ABC from 1947 to 1949, where they starred in a weekly evening series as well as a Saturday morning show aimed at their younger fans.
Lou Costello died on March 3, 1959. Bud Abbott died on April 24, 1974.They were inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2005.
