Story: Humour

Havoc and Newsboy, 1998

The permanently dishevelled Mikey Havoc was one of the most recognisable funny men of the late 1990s. This clip is from the first episode of his 1998 weekly, hour-long television show, co-presented with Newsboy (Jeremy Wells). Wells went on to front his own, often controversial, mock current-affairs programmes.
