Fronted by Johnny Smacks & Johnny B, the 6 x 30’ series will shine a light on all things Irish – bringing viewers a celebration of the great characters, humour, music, fun and silliness to be found in pubs throughout the country. It will feature comedy and entertainment from the Tipperary duo who will be joined each evening by some well-known pals for shenanigans down the “local”.

This series was commissioned by Justin Healy, Commissioning Editor for Comedy and Katherine Drohan, commissioning editor for entertainment for Alan Tyler, group head of entertainment, music and comedy. Executive producer for Green Inc is Stephen Stewart and the series will be produced in association with Saltbeef TV’s Jeremy Salsby.

The 2 Johnnies Late Night Lock In begins on RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player in October. Commenting on the commission, 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.”

Green Inc CEO Stephen Stewart added: “We’re going to the pub with the hottest property in Ireland - what’s not to like… Thanks to Alan, Justin and Katherine for the rare chance to launch a new full-blown, entertainment series, and to work again with Jeremy. It’s going to be good.. and fun!”
