Amos 'n Andy was a situation sketch comedy show based on the African-American community that ran from the 20's throughout the 50's.  Amos 'n Andy was one of the earliest comedy series, first broadcast in 1928, and it inspired many of the comedy duos that followed.  The series ran nightly from 1928 to 1943, and weekly from 1943 to 1955.  Amos 'n Andy was the first radio program distributed by syndication.  The voices of Amos 'n Andy were provided by Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll, who were not African American themselves.

The stories revolved around the humorous adventures of two friends, Amos Jones and Andy Brown, who left a farm in Georgia to find a better life in Chicago, where they started a company called the Fresh Air Taxi Company (because the car they bought had no roof!)  Amos was gullible and naive but hardworking, and Andy was a bumbling dreamer.  Another character, George 'The Kingfish' Stevens, was a friend of the duo who was trying to lure them into get rich quick schemes.

Amos 'n Andy began as one of the first radio comedy series, written and voiced by Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll and originating from station WMAQ in Chicago.

(Interestingly, the original characters created by Gosden and Correll were named Sam 'n Henry.)
