Abbott and Costello may not have been the authors of Who’s on First, but it was Abbott and Costello’s signature routine that made it famous.
Abbott and Costello were an American comedy duo composed of comedians Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, whose work on radio and in film and television made them the most popular comedy team of the 1940s and early 1950s and the highest-paid entertainers in the world during World War II.
