Full Length, Comedy / 5m, 2f / Scenery: Interior

Al and Willie as "Lewis and Clark" were top-billed vaudevillians for over forty years. Now they aren't even speaking. When CBS requests them for a "History of Comedy" retrospective, a grudging reunion brings the two back together, along with a flood of memories, miseries and laughs.

"It's ham on wry...Simon's sure footed craftsmanship and his one liners are as exquisitely apt as ever."-New York Post

"Delicious and oddly affecting."-The New York Times

"Another hit for Simon in a shrewdly balanced, splendid and rather touching slice of the show biz life."-New York Daily News
