Abbott and Costello were an American comedy duo composed of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, whose work on radio and in film and television made them the most popular comedy team of the 1940s and early 1950s. Their patter routine "Who's on First?" is one of the best-known comedy routines of all time in the world, and set the framework for many of their best-known comedy bits.

I've heard of Abbott & Costello, I've seen some of their movies and gives me good laughs. This is the first time just hearing them. In comedy, I've always love slapstick comedy, from them, The Three Stoogies and Charlie Chaplin, though looked down as silly, I find it inventive. To sort of bend the rules & laws of reality to allow more possibilities and to invent creative gags.
