George Burns and Gracie Allen was one of the funniest duos in the history of American comedy. Both came from vaudeville, where they performed from childhood, honing their skills. When they met and decided to work together, they created an act that is unforgettable. While their earlier shows continued their standup vaudeville act, they gradually transformed their format to create one of the earliest situation comedies.

The two employed running gags, including George’s purported jealousy of Gracie’s latest crush, and Gracie’s search for her missing brother—a gimmick that was incorporated into the popular culture of the day. Numerous major stars of the period appeared on their shows; regulars included Harry Von Zell, Hans Conreid, and Meredith Willson.

The comedic skill of the two is legendary. George’s writing and dry wit were a perfect foil for the dazzling dizziness of the brilliant Gracie. For sheer fun, Burns and Allen ranks among the best of the Old Time Radio programs
