Morecambe & Wise immortalised with blue plaque

Legendary British comedy duo Morecambe & Wise has been honoured with a special tribute in London. Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise recorded the majority of their popular sketches at Teddington Studios in Middlesex, England and a blue plaque has now been erected at the venue by officials at The Heritage Foundation to mark its significance in U.K. TV history.
Morecambe’s widow Joan unveiled the dedication with her daughter Gail on Sunday (19May13) and she hopes the plaque will keep their memory alive for years to come.
She tells Sky News, “The shows still come across as being funny. They’re still entertaining, even for new audiences and people who weren’t around in the days of Eric and Ernie.
“People are very nostalgic about their shows; they hone into long-term memories because they worked in television for years and years.”
Morecambe died in 1984, while Wise passed away in 1999.
