The Sunshine Boys
Comedy

Al Lewis and Willie Clark were vintage comics on Vaudeville. Forty-three years of hilarious sketches and double entendres: No wonder they call them The Sunshine Boys. But that was twelve years ago, before the argument that ended it all. Now Ben, Willy's nephew and hard-working agent, has been called by the producer of a TV Special wanting to feature a reunion of the classic duo. Will he convince the cantankerous duo to forget their feud in time for the big show? One of Neil Simon's finest.
