24 September 2016Laurel and Hardy are undoubtedly the most famous and popular comedy double-act of all time, with well over three hundred solo and team films between them. But their comedy work wasn't solely in films. Before making films in Hollywood, Laurel spent several years working on the British stage and in Music Hall, followed by several more touring the United States of America in Vaudeville. Babe Hardy too had spells on the American stage early on in his career, as a singer.
A.J Marriot has been a been a member of the world-wide Laurel & Hardy Appreciation Society, the Sons of the Desert, since 1981; and since 2001 has been the Editor and Features Writer of The Laurel and Hardy Magazine.

and Hardy's screen career
was over, Laurel returned Britain and the British Variety stage, and took with
his American partner, Oliver Hardy. This was quickly followed by two
spells in Europe - one being a stage tour of Denmark, Sweden, France,
and Belgium - the second being a year spent making their last film, Atoll K, in France.
And so what of the accounts of all the years these comic geniuses spent on stage? Where are they? Laurel & Hardy films have spawned hundreds of books and thousands of articles, but written work on Stan and Ollie's stage shows wouldn't fill one magazine, much less a book. Not, that it is, until along came the four books: LAUREL and HARDY The British Tours; LAUREL and HARDY The European Tours; LAUREL and HARDY The US Tours; and CHAPLIN Stage by Stage (which also details 'STAN LAUREL The Fred Karno Tours')
