How tall was Eddie Large

Eddie Large's Height

5ft 4 (162.6 cm)

Edward McGinnis was a Scottish comedian, famous for being part of the double-act Little and Large.
I love singing and got up one night, sang a song with him - I think I'm Cliff Richard, not realising I'm 5 feet four and 14 stone - so I think they were laughing at the antics really. And it sort of grew from there.

Yeah rob I say little is 5ft 5 flat there with ant and dec and large is maybe 5ft 2.5
Editor Rob
Both would have lost height by then of course, but it shows that the Little & Large duo were short guys, but still in the 80's drew in big crowds.

It's ironic how his name's Large, yet his partner Little was taller than him.

How tall is syd little then rob? He doesnt look much taller than eddie here
Editor Rob
At his peak Little could have been closer to 5ft 6 than 5, but in latter years, look at Little and Large with Ant and Dec Click Here. Eddie might have dropped under 5ft 3 and Syd is shorter than McPartlin now.

What a brilliant idea to add one of the old comedy greats.

At just 5ft4, the only thing large about him was his waistline!

....and his bottom, his chubby little arms and legs, and his round little face....

A wonderful 5ft4! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘

He did look shorter than 5ft 4 by his 60's, but I think 5ft 4 for a peak Eddie during 80's is fair.
