Derek and Clive were fictional comedic characters created by Dudley Moore (Derek) and Peter Cook (Clive) in the 1970s.

Their outrageous performances were captured on the records Derek and Clive: (Live) (1976), Derek and Clive – Come Again (1977), and Derek and Clive – Ad Nauseam (1978). A greatest hits album containing some previously unreleased material, called Rude & Rare The Best of Derek and Clive, was released in 2011.

When Derek and Clive arrived, they were a revelation and pre-dated alternative comedy by several years. Their barrier-shattering range of topics – a veritable cornucopia of obscenity  – was also a comic prelude to the punk revolution that was to come.

Considered highly offensive by many at the time, they even provoked complaints from police forces across England demanding they be banned. The sketches primarily took the form of bizarre, sometimes 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 behind and and a horse-racing ‘commentary’ featuring horses named after sexual organs or their vulgarised derivatives.

“To hear two famous comedians abusing each other was unmitigatedly liberating. It felt as if they had enfranchised a whole section of working-class society, giving it a comic voice that had been overlooked by middle-class comedians for years. Pete and Dud were permanent outsiders, looking in at a world they didn’t understand.  Derek and Clive recognised the simple but overlooked fact that ordinary people swear a hell of a lot, but the way that Cook – especially Cook – used language was so casually evocative that he achieved something that surpassed mere obscenity”.  Alexander Games  (author of Pete & Dud: An Illustrated Biography)

To this day they are still highly revered by a huge raft of well-known comedians: Ricky Gervais, Jenny Éclair, David Baddiel and Johnny Vegas to name but a few

Needless to say, this complete Derek and Clive collection contains very strong language…
