As announced on Friday night's Late Late Show, The 2 Johnnies will front a brand-new show this October in the form of The 2 Johnnies Late Night Lock In.

The six-part series will feature comedy and entertainment from the Tipperary duo, who will be joined each evening by well-known figures in a local pub setting. Listeners to the presenter’s RTÉ 2FM radio show will be familiar with The Parish Quiz, which will have its television debut in the new series. There will also be  music from Johnny B, Johnny Smacks, and guest collaborators throughout the series.

The show will focus on all things Irish, celebrating the humour, music, and “silliness” to be found in pubs throughout the country, hosted by The 2 Johnnies in a one-hour format.

The 2 Johnnies are putting out a call out for people with great stories, hidden talents, and groups eager to represent their parish in The Parish Quiz to get in touch. Email casting @ greeninc.tv to take part.

“It’s a show by the people for the people, so get a head start on the weekend, and embrace the madness!” said Johnny Smacks, speaking about the new series.

“People told us we're not real comedians, we're just the funny lads down the pub, so we said we'll film our new TV show in a pub!” added Johnny B. “Our whole reason for doing what we do is to get the mad scones of Ireland on TV and on the radio, there are so many funny, wild characters on this island, this show is a celebration of them.”

“Unfiltered, unstoppable, unmissable, the Two Johnnies delivered a hugely exciting pilot show and we can't wait to bring audiences the full series,” said Alan Tyler, Group Head of Entertainment, Comedy and Music at RTÉ. “They also made it very clear that they would be paying me a visit if I didn't agree to write this.”

The series has been commissioned by Justin Healy, Commissioning Editor for Comedy and Katherine Drohan, Commissioning Editor for Entertainment at RTÉ.

Speaking about the series, Justin Healy, Commissioning Editor for Comedy, RTÉ added: “We are delighted to announce this commission. The Two Johnnies have been on the radar for some time, so it’s great to have worked with them to get to this point and design a show around their unique ability to engage and resonate with a contemporary youthful Irish audience.”

The 2 Johnnies Late Night Lock In begins on RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player in October.
