Al and Willie were top-billed vaudevillians, known as the comedy duo “Lewis and Clark.” Despite their celebrated reputation, the two old men have not spoken in years. When CBS requests them for a “History of Comedy” retrospective, a grudging reunion brings the two back together for a flood of memories, miseries and lots of laughs.
