Hullawrerr China! : The Francie and Josie Scripts Paperback
The best of Francie & Josie from their many appearances on stage and TV, adapted specially for this definitive collection Francie & Josie first appeared in public in 1958 as a sketch in the Five Past Eight Show at the Alhambra Theatre in Glasgow.
They were a riotous success. Originally brought to life by Stanley Baxter, it was the partnership of Rikki Fulton and Jack Milroy which brought Francie & Josie fame and fortune.
Enough to buy a few fish suppers, anyway. Theatre appearances and their own TV show in the 1960s continued their success and they were even asked to open a supermarket in Dennistoun.
It all added to the Francie & Josie legend and their career as Glasgow's most gallus teddy boys was to last for an incredible thirty-eight years.
Due to popular demand there were to be even more 'farewell' performances than the Rolling Stones managed.
Year after year they returned to the stage so that each joke and every well-known sketch could be savoured one last time.
Hullawrerr China! is a collection of Francie & Josie's funniest scripts from their many years in showbusiness - including the original version of the legendary Arbroath sketch. And in the words of Francie & Josie: We have perspired thegether to make a pair of spectacles of wurselves and foisted wursleves on a highly expectorent public.
We do not wish youso to be under any disillusionment, so we are taking this opperchancity to present before your very eyes a production which for sheer hypocrisy and slite-of-hand will live forever in the annuals of all maternity.
