Synopsis by Hal Erickson
As indicated by its title, the British sitcom Take My Wife was set in the rarefied world of standup comedy. Duggie Brown starred as Harvey Hall, a second-rate comic who spent most of his career in fourth-rate clubs. The great Victor Spinetti costarred as Harvey's seedy agent Maurice Watkins, while Elisabeth Sladen was seen as Harvey's aristocratic and not entirely supportive wife. Produced by Granada Television and broadcast by ITV, the six 30-minute episodes of Take My Wife were originally seen from January 17 to March 7, 1979.
