Bud Abbott and Lou Costello
Mention Bud Abbott and Lou Costello and most people immediately think of their classic "Who's on First" routine. Unfortunately, that's all they are known for to those members of younger generations who happen to recognize the duo's names. That's too bad because there was so much more to Abbott and Costello than that one hilarious exchange.
In 1941, they ranked No. 3 at the box-office....In 1942, they moved up to No. 1. That was also the year they began their own weekly radio show. Overall, Abbott and Costello ranked in the top 10 box-office money makers during eight of their 15 years at Universal.
Each has three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for radio, television and motion pictures. They made more feature films (36) together than any other comedy team in movie history, including Laurel and Hardy, Martin and Lewis and Hope and Crosby.
