TV NEWS: 7th Nov 1981 - 13th Nov 1981TV NEWS Nov 7 through Nov 13

In the same week as Peter Cook appeared on the cover of the TV Guide, he was also gracing the front page of TV NEWS.
Instead of an interview with Peter Cook, TV NEWS seem to have created a rather ghastly & inaccurate article. . . Why, oh why, does it end "[Peter Cook] is 6'2" tall, weighs 175 pounds and has gray hair and blue eyes", as though he were some sort of 'Missing Person'?
Incidentally, Dudley Moore's film '10' was broadcast for the first time on US network television the following evening. Broadcast began at the same time as The Two of Us, on the same channel. . .

Peter Cook as Robert Brentwood.
'I SAY!'
Peter Cook of 'The Two Of Us' does frequently, with wit.

Peter Cook, who stars as the veddy propuh butler, Robert Brentwood in The Two Of Us, seen Monday nights on CBS is an actor, satirist, playwright and director of British theater.

Born in Torquay, England, and educated at Radley School and Pembroke College, Cambridge, he began writing in school, submitting items to a British humor magazine. Then he started his own humor magazine, "Private Eye," which soon overtook its competitor in circulation.

Believing he would follow his father into the foreign service, Cook appeared in college theater productions strictly for fun. But he got hooked on acting and writing and became president of The Footlights, a revue club.

At an Edinburgh Festival, Cook met Dudley Moore and they formed the satirical comedy group, "Beyond The Fringe," with Alan Bennett and Jonathan Miller. After a year's run in London, the show opened in New York, where Cook won a Tony Award.

In 1972, Cook and Moore toured Australia with their two-man show, "Behind The Fridge" (a spoof of "Beyond The Fringe"), which Cook co-authored. The show opened on Broadway as "Good Evening," and Cook received his second Tony Award for it.

Cook's motion pictures include "A Dandy In Aspic," "The Rise And Rise Of Michael Rimmer," "The Wrong Box" (with Moore), "Monte Carlo Or Bust," "The Bed Sitting Room" and "Bedazzled," which was written by Cook and scored by Moore.

His BBC television credits include the hit series Not Only . . . But Also, and Mr. Wistey, and "Peter Cook And Company," a comedy special he wrote and starred in. On American television, he has hosted Saturday Night Live and appeared on national talk shows. He won a Grammy Award for his comedy album of "Good Evening."

Cook lives in Hampstead, England, with his wife, Judy, and his two daughters, Lucy and Daisy, from a former marriage. An avid golfer and gambler, he is 6'2" tall, weighs 175 pounds and has gray hair and blue eyes.
