Pete and Dud’s Frog and Peach

Media

I have a local playlist of old-time radio and English comedy that I play when I need a bit of cheering up. Clicking Random this afternoon gave me this wonderful routine from the legendary English duo. I’m sure it’s on the Internet somewhere:

Dudley Moore: I’m talking tonight, to Sir Arthur Greeb-Streebling.

Peter Cook: Oh no you’re not.

Dudley Moore: I’m not?

Peter Cook: You’re not at all. You’re talking to Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling.

Dudley Moore: Oh, I…

Peter Cook: You’re confusing me with Sir Arthur Greeb-Streebling!

Dudley Moore: I’m so sorry.

Peter Cook: Yes, well my name is Streeb-Greebling. The “T” is silent, as in fox.

Regarding the food served at his new restaurant:

Peter Cook: We have frog à la pêche. It’s one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen.

And on the transport options to get to the establishment:

Peter Cook: Stuck out here in the middle of a bog, in the heart of the Yorkshire moors, there’s no problem parking the car. A little difficulty in extracating it…
