Jonathan Ross To Host Pete & Dud Tribute
It has been announced that Jonathan Ross will be presenting a tribute to legendary comedians Dudley Moore and Pete Cook. The programme will be one of the last shows the departing ‘comedian’ will present for the BBC having already confirmed his plans to set sail for a larger bank balance.
Pete and Dud: The Lost Sketches will feature contemporary comedians reinterpreting the comedy duo’s material. Already confirmed to appear are Angus Deayton and Adrian Edmondson both of whom have previously expressed great admiration for two of Britain’s most influential comedians of all time.
Sadly the BBC permanently erased 13 of the 23 episodes of Pete and Dud’s Not Only But Also 40 years ago during a routine clearance of their archives.
