This late-night Channel 4 alternative comedy series (produced by London Weekend Television) introduced Hale & Pace to TV audiences and expanded Chris Barrie’s career beyond his impressions and vocal talent on Spitting Image.
Gareth Hale and Norman Pace unveiled their sinister double act, the Two Rons (“the management”), and satirical songs were sung each week by Carla Mendonça.
Clever, cynical and often crude – with definite left-of-centre leanings – Pushing Up Daisies left no target safe.
