Who are your all time favourite double act?

Asked by ucme (46019points) October 12th, 2011

You know, buddies known for working together on a frequent basis.
This can cover comedians, actors, singers, superheroes & their sidekicks. Hell, you can even throw in politicians if you feel the need.
Mine would be Laurel & Hardy without a shadow of doubt, closely followed by Redford & Newman, Butch & Sundance/The Sting.

This question instantly got one of the songs from the musical Chicago stuck in my head.

Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes.
Angus and Julia Stone.
I feel like I’m going to think of something much better and come back again.

@Kardamom- Alan and Emma were in the Harry Potter movies together too (Trelawney and Snape)
I liked Emma with Kenneth Branagh, but also like Batman and Robin, Abbott and Costello, Laurel and Hardy, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and Gamarjobat.

@ucme I could not possibly venture beyond your fine mess of a preeminent choice.

L+H.

@linguaphile That’s right!!! I’m just so obsessed with Snape in the Potter movies, that I almost neglected poor Emma Thompson. But that’s OK, she keeps herself busy with Anthony Hopkins in The Remains of the Day and Howard’s End. Another yummy pairing : )

@ucme @Scooby @linguaphile I now live in the town where Stan Laurel was born – there’s a museum here dedicated to them, and my local pub is the Stan Laurel Inn… :-)

I still love the two Ronnies… And it’s goodnight from me….
