Beyond the Fringe
Beyond the Fringe was a British comedy stage revue written and performed by Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Alan Bennett, and Jonathan Miller. It played in London's West End and then on New York's Broadway in the early 1960s. Hugely successful, it is widely regarded as seminal to the rise of satire based comedy in 1960s Britain.
