Stage revue show written by and (originally) starring two Cambridge grads, Peter Cook and Jonathan Miller and two Oxford grads, Creator/DudleyMoore and Creator/AlanBennett. Debuted at the Edinburgh Festival in the Summer of 1960 and later enjoyed long runs in the West End and Broadway. Considered the ''[[Music/TheBeachBoys Pet Sounds]]'' to the Creator/MontyPython's ''[[Music/TheBeatles Sgt. Pepper]]'' (interestingly a [[{{Sampling}} sample]] from a recording of the show was used on the Sgt. Pepper album) and the emergence of the modern British Comedy movement of the [[TheSixties 1960s]].
