Rate this:

One Leg Too Few will feature an extensive range of fresh interviews, previously unpublished archive material and a wealth of information about the most creative (and explosive) double act that British comedy has ever produced.

One Leg Too Few is a book about an extraordinary relationship: a friendship, a partnership - almost, at times, a marriage. Like a lot of marriages it ended badly, but for nearly 20 years, between the first date and the inevitable divorce, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore were the funniest thing on three continents.

One Leg Too Few is the story of that relationship, and the comedy that came from it.

Peter Cook's influence on British comedy and therefore it's eventual influence on American comedy was profound. He was truly a pioneer of the art and his story is bittersweet when you realize what could have been if not for the hurtles of alcoholism and celebrity's fickle fate that sabotaged the man's life. Watch his videos on You Tube and you'll see a master of the form.
