(Very Rare!) Laurel & Hardy Themselves – A Comedy Sketch on 78 (1932)


One of the most famous comedy duo of all time, Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy, performs a Comedy sketch for British Columbia, recorded in London, on August 18th, 1932. Only 1000 copy of this was made, the record was only avaliable in British market, so it is quite rare material; I don’t know if there is any transfer of this recording was made later. Speaking about Laurel & Hardy’s voice featured in this recording, they sound somewhat different in tone, pitch, etc – compared with the voices from the movies; I don’t know why this kind of difference were made.

    They could get more mileage with so little – more than any other comedians of their generation.

    Ollie has a very ‘Orson Welles’ vibe about him. “Here, you vapid ape. why don’t you eat this hard boiled egg and shut your trap.”

    Slightly sped up, no?

    What a treasure! In the pre-VHS days, there would be LPs made of L&H soundtracks, and I remember having one around the house. Even not seeing them on film, and just hearing this record is priceless. To quote “ateleia” THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    Fascinating, simply fascinating. It makes me wish I was around at the time

    I have heard this before, but in very scratchy and low-fi form. This copy is very good. Nice and clean, considering it is from 1932!

    Bless. Lovely how Stan sounds so much more Northern English like he’s relaxing back into his native accent.

    This is so wonderful! I am a big, big fan of the two. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
    Regarding the difference in sound I thinks this is maybe the different equalization curves of British Columbias and, as we can hear, the faults of the recording engineer.

    Very clear and clean audio!
    congratulations!

    Thanks for posting this rare recording. It is enjoyable to listen to Laurel and Hardy’s sketch. But what I find more interesting is that the humor gives us a window into how differently people thought in the past – less than just a century ago!
