Biography

Derek and Clive is a double act of comedic characters created by Dudley Moore (Derek) and Peter Cook (Clive) in the 1970s. The performances were captured on the records Derek and Clive (Live) (1976), Derek and Clive Come Again (1977), and Derek and Clive Ad Nauseam (1978), as well as in a film documentary, Derek and Clive Get the Horn (1979). The characters are foul-mouthed extensions of the earlier characters Pete and Dud.

Considered highly offensive by many at the time, the sketches primarily took the form of bizarre, sometime drunken streams of consciousness led by Cook, with interjections from Moore. Memorable moments from the records include Clive claiming that the worst job he ever had was retrieving lobsters from Jayne Mansfield’s arsehole, Derek claiming his worst job was cleaning up Winston Churchill’s bogies (leading the pair to conclude that the Titanic was one such bogie), Clive claiming that he was sexually aroused by the sight of a deceased Pope lying in state, and a horse-racing ‘commentary’ featuring horses named after sexual organs or their vulgarised derivatives.

Though the recordings were far too crude for television or a mainstream audience, Derek and Clive bootleg recordings circulated. They became famous as mostly unscripted dialogues, vulgar situations depicting with copious swearing - especially the word “cunt”.

    I don't quite get why most people quote from Come & Again. It's by far the weakest.

    CLIVE: Mianne... She wanted some lip gloss, you know. [...] CLIVE: Anyway, point was, they gave her a cement mixer. She was distraught! So I told her she looked fine with it on. DEREK: Wait a minute, it's all coming back to me! Fred was laying down a patio in the back yard. He was working on it for four hours; he told me he'd been working for four hours. And there was... fucking lip gloss all over the back yard. CLIVE: Shit, obviously there's been that confusion. DEREK: They should fucking label things!

    Anyway, I was wanking away and, frankly, I was going slightly berserk, you know. Clinging onto things, you know... jerking all round the room, pulling down all the furniture and fittings, grabbing hold of the carpet and being sick in the ashtrays...
