Lyricist, actor and singer Michael Flanders (1922-1975) and composer and pianist Donald Swann (1923-1994) collaborated in writing and performing. They first worked together in a school revue in 1939 and eventually wrote more than 100 comic songs together.
Between 1956 and 1967, Flanders and Swann performed their songs, interspersed with comic monologues, in their long-running two-man revues called At the Drop of a Hat and At the Drop of Another Hat, which they toured in Britain and abroad.
