"The Abbott and Costello Show" is timeless humor as fresh today as it was 50 years ago. All of Abbott and Costello's classic routines such as "Who's on first" can be found in this show. This program captures the two when they were at their peak of their comedic prowess. The cast includes Mr.Field, Mike the Cop, Stinky, Bacciagalupe and Hillary. These shows stand today as perhaps the finest surviving representation of the art of burlesque comedy.
