The greatest comedy team of the ‘40s and ‘50s kept a generation of American tv and radio audiences rolling with laughter. Tune in your bids to this classic Abbott & Costello radio show script. Front page notations indicate this to be Bud Abbott’s personal script copy for a show that aired on ABC radio on 11/5/47. Thirty-seven typed pages of incredible comedic content will take you on a time trip for a first-hand look at an era when folks gathered around the radio for nightly entertainment. Held together by a single period paper clip this sturdy relic of broadcast history is well worthy of museum presentation. The red pencil notations on the first page are reported to be in Abbott’s hand. No authentication due to time/costs.
