Harry Enfield’s Television Programme

Comedy sketch show that introduced the world to a host of cult characters and catchphrases from the minds of Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse.

Characters include Smashie and Nicey, two out-dated radio DJs; The Old Gits, an obnoxious pair of old men who take great delight in persecuting young people; Wayne and Waynetta, a pair of benefit-dependent slobs with a dubious sense of hygiene; Tim Nice-But-Dim, an upper-class twit; Mr You-Don’t-Wanna-Do-It-Like-That, an infuriatingly know-it-all; Les the Landlord, an absent-minded pub landlord who frequently mixes up orders and the names of regular customers.
