Keith Harris & Orville was a brilliant variety act back in the day. Back in the days when those kinds of shows ruled television.
In a peculiar coincidence, I was speaking to a friend about ventriloquists a few days ago. I found myself on YouTube catching old clips of some of the greats. I obviously ended up watching Keith Harris & Orville.
I urge you to seek out some of these clips.
Don't forget - it wasn't just Orville that Harris was associated with. He also had the monkey named Cuddles. There are clips of that act as well.
