Jules and Sand, Bluebottle and Eccles, Tony Hancock and Sid James. Between them, these three very different shows from the '50s and '60s define and encapsulate the glory days of radio comedy. And what's more, where would contemporary radio and TV comedy be without them? Exploring the origins and lasting influence of the 'Big Three', this is the only book to focus on the comedy rather than the lives of the men behind the microphones.
