ABBOTT AND COSTELLO SHOW
Bud Abbott and Lou Costello made their radio debut on CBS The Kate Smith Show as replacements for Hollywood-bound Henny Youngman. The former burlesque comics reintroduced and preserved the classic comedy sketches of vaudeville in their films and radio and television series, including their most famous sketch, "Whos On First?" which had been introduced years earlier by husband and wife vaudevillians Joey and Judi Faye. The Abbott and Costello Show debuted as a 1940 summer replacement for Fred Allen and later aired from October 8, 1942 through June 29, 1949.
