Grammar – Have you heard (of) Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie?

 Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie met when they were in Cambridge. They thought they could do a comedy act together. They both write and act and decided to put together programmes – double acts – on radio and British television. Their double acts were hugely successful in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. In these shows, they exchange views, make comments, pass critical remarks – all through the medium of comedy. Their lampooning of what they see around them has kept scores of audiences in splits.
A Bit of Fry and Laurie was a British television series starring Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, broadcast by the BBC between 1989 and 1995. Running for four series, it totalled 26 episodes (including a 35 minute special in 1987).
