Peter Cook DiscographyDiscography | Albums | Singles
This discography would not have been possible without Laugh Fanzine's Cook discography.

We would also like to thank the Kenneth Williams Appreciation SocietyMr. Blint's Attic, Helen Gardner and Some Of The Corpses Are Amusing.

 Peter Cook Presents The Misty Mr. Wisty LP
audio files taken from the wonderful 1965 album.
 Peter Cook Docu
as we were asked to contribute 'ideas' for the Carlton TV "Legends" docu, I thought I'd make it available via the site.

 Would you like us to notify you, via email, each time we update The Establishment?

 Hosted by Yahoo!, this list is used only to announce updates at and is in no way supposed to replace the Peter Cook eMail List.

[ Compilation Albums: We have noted here those compilation albums featuring just one or two Cook-related sketches which we regard as being the most important. There are, of course, countless other compilation albums and new ones coming out all the time with sketches featuring Peter Cook, but to have included all of them would have clogged up the main flow of the discography. If you feel we have missed out any particularly important ones please drop a line to Clinty ]
