Question

Guest

An inn on the left and lodge on the right,

Up or out yet always at height.

Of substance not real yet flesh at the core,

Who can name this duo of yore?

is it laurel and hardie lol

No, but not such a bad guess. All 4 lines give very specific clues to the answer.

No one is close yet, but I can say that gemlou at least took a step in the general direction.

I've added a couple lines that should help tremendously. Here is the full riddle with the new lines in bold:

An inn on the left and lodge on the right,

Up or out yet always at height.

Part of the act yet on the outside

Always ready to produce a jest or a jibe

Of substance not real yet flesh at the core,

Who can name this duo of yore?

Sorry I disappeared for a bit on my own riddle. I hope you keep guessing as this riddle will be quite clear when the answer is revealed.

No one has it yet.

theater is in the right direction, though not exactly as you may think.

I'll think of another hint in case no one gets closer.

puppet

For some reason

Apples and Oranges, but after your hints, I don't think so. Comedy/Tragedy?

With that idea

Kermit and miss piggy. But this is unfair, I don't know the muppets very well.

Exactly!

An inn on the left and lodge on the right, (both named after hotels)

Up or out yet always at height. (awake or asleep, they hang out in the balcony)

Part of the act yet on the outside (they were always critiquing the muppet show, yet were part of it)

Always ready to produce a jest or a jibe (they insulted every muppet skit)

Of substance not real yet flesh at the core, (a puppet with a hand in it)

Who can name this duo of yore? (Answer = Statler & Waldorf)
