Bob Robertson and Linda Cullen have been called the funniest married couple in Canada.
They met at CKNW radio where both worked — Robertson as a weatherman on the Frosty Forst morning show where he used his knack for vocal impersonations to spoof many a public figure.
Together Robertson and Cullen created the popular CBC Radio series "Double Exposure" which launched in 1987 and ran for over 10 years.
The show spawned many cross-Canada live tours and television specials, including the very popular New Year's Eve special called "A Swift Kick in the Year End."
In 1997, Double Exposure became a weekly comedy series on CTV and the Comedy Network. Robertson pulled triple duty as writer, performer and executive producer for the three-year duration of the program.
In 2004, Double Exposure was given a star on Vancouver's Entertainment Row on Granville Street.
Robertson passed away Sunday at age 71 after a lengthy stay in hospital in Nanaimo.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-c ... -1.4033337
