Hale & Pace

Show Summary

British Comedy Series starring Gareth Hale and Norman Pace. Hale and Pace met while in Teacher training and bonded. They began performing comedy stand-up to supplement their teachers wages. After recording a single on-off special for London Weekend Television in Christmas 1986, they were given a full series in 1988. Their relationship with ITV lasted a decade, with most of their programmes going out around 10pm on a Sunday. Their most famous comic creations are the bouncers The Two Rons - also known as The Management; and children's TV presenters Billy (Hale) and Johnny (Pace). A number of their TV sketches caused controversy, especially a scene performed when they pretended to have microwaved a cat. In 1996, Hale and Pace recorded several episodes of a series called: Hale and Pace Down Under. Loosely based on their adventures while touring doing live stand-up gigs in Australia. According to the BBC website, there were ten series of the show.
