Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse To Tour Characters For The First Time

For the first time since comedy legends Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse started working together in 1988, they are to take some of their most famous characters on tour.

In an interview with the Radio Times Whitehouse said “we have never done it since 1988 and all the stuff we have done on telly has never been done live. Before we die, or before another comedian puts a contract out on us we thought we’d do a live show. Hopefully in the autumn. Mainly in Iceland but we thought we’d do a couple of UK dates”.

The pair have given us some of the most memorable characters in British comedy, like big teethed DJs Smashie and Nicey, Angry Frank, and Loadsamoney.

The proposed tour follows the announcement of a TV special, which will see them giving the Harry and Paul treatment to real life personalities including Mark Rylance and Margaret Thatcher.

Oi, Enfield! Yeeeees!
