Watch Abbott & Costello Colgate Comedy Hour
- 1 Season
One of the earliest hits on television was the "Colgate Comedy Hour," which was hosted by a rotating group of hosts that included Martin & Lewis, Eddie Cantor and Abbott & Costello. The shows were done live from NYC, Chicago and Los Angeles and featured the hottest singers and entertainers of the day. Abbott & Costello's segments on the show weren't all that different than what you would see the duo perform in a full-length movie. And that was a problem for the two comedy veterans, who left the show after three years because they felt that they had used up all their best material.
