He began making solo appearances, singing, dancing, and telling jokes, in 1936, and, in autumn of 1938 he came to the attention of Bryan Michie, a leading juvenile talent spotter, who recommended him to the impresario Jack Hylton.

In 1939, the year he first met Eric Morecambe, then known as Eric Bartholomew, he appeared with top Br itish comedian Arthur Askey in his famous Band Waggon show, billed as Britain's Mickey Rooney. Gradually, Ernie Wise and Morecambe formed a tight friendship, and, in 1941, they started their comedy double act, which was to last until Morecambe's death in 1984.
