The comedian who carted a fridge round Ireland chooses his favourite comedy programmes, including Saturday Night Fry, Just A Minute and Knowing Me Knowing You.
Tony Hawks began his career in show business as a singer-song writer, leading a trio called Morris Minor and the Majors. He now performs stand-up comedy, appears regularly on panel games, and is also an author. His books Round Ireland With a Fridge and Playing the Moldovans at Tennis, have both been broadcast on Radio 7. Tony donated half of the royalties from his Moldovans book to a trust fund in Moldova, and the monies raised were used to open a medical centre which provides therapy for disabled children.
As Comedy Controller, Tony has chosen the following five classics:
The Emigrant (17/02/57); Saturday Night Fry (01/05/88); Just A Minute (02/03/96); Knowing Me Knowing You (22/12/92) and I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again (16/07/67).
