Synopsis

In 1953, several years after their last film and with their immense celebrity on the wane, comedy double act Stan Laurel and Ollie Hardy embark on a tour of British seaside towns and music halls. They initially struggle for audiences and their booking agent seems disinterested, but a series of TV guest spots and celebrity appearances soon rekindle the country’s interest in their act and the tour builds towards a big London finale. But as the attention grows, so too do old resentments, coming to a head when they are joined in Britain by their wives Lucille and Ida.
