My first experience of Simon Day, I think, was as Tommy Cockles, appearing as a regular on Paramount City, right at the start of the 1990s. It was a good few years before The Fast Show. Here he is, as Cockles, on Wogan in 1992.
The applause at the end seems a little sudden. Was Wogan broadcast live? Or was there an edit? Or maybe the floor manager just called for the applause.
I love David Tomlinson’s enjoyment here too.
Here’s Day in an advert for Powergen circa 2003.
