Last Words – Lou Costello – Note
While working in vaudeville in the 1930s, Costello became acquainted with a talented straight man named Bud Abbott.
After working together sporadically, Abbott and Costello formally teamed up in 1936. They performed together in burlesque shows, minstrel shows, vaudeville and movie houses.
They split up in July 1957, after troubles with the Internal Revenue Service forced both men to sell off their large homes and the rights to some of their films.
