Eddie Braben

Eddie Braben was the writer that almost single handedly propelled Morecambe and Wise to super stardom throughout their time at the BBC in the 1970’s, as he was the man that wrote virtually everything they said, although not how they said it, that was Eric’s particular skill.

It’s a bit late and I’m afraid I haven’t got the energy to write a glowing obituary just at the mo, so I’m going to put this short video clip up instead, as to me it says more about timing, comedic lines, silliness and middle aged men sharing bedrooms than words ever could..

Genius indeed.
