This late-night alternative comedy series from Channel 4 (produced by LWT) introduced Hale & Pace to TV audiences and Chris Barrie’s career beyond his impressions and vocal talent used on Spitting Image.
Gareth Hale and Norman Pace unveiled their sinister double act, the Two Rons, and satirical songs were sung each week by Carla Mendonça.
