It looks like we’ll be seeing a whole lot more of The 2 Johnnies.

The lads will front a brand-new show this October in the form of The 2 Johnnies Late Night Lock In.

And we couldn’t be more excited!

So what can we expect?


Well, it looks like we’re getting all kinds of everything in the six-part series. It will feature comedy and entertainment from the Tipperary duo.

Johnny B and Johnny Smacks will be joined each evening by some well-known pals for shenanigans down the “local”.

Listeners to the presenter’s RTÉ 2FM radio show will be thrilled to learn that the new series will feature the television debut of The Parish Quiz, as well as music from the lads and guest collaborators throughout the series.

The synopsis for the show reads: “The show will shine a light on all things Irish – bringing viewers on a celebration of the great characters, humour, music, fun and silliness to be found in pubs throughout the country. As charismatic and fearless hosts, The 2 Johnnies will bring it all together during an hour of unpredictable chaos.”

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

While Johnny B added: “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! 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.”

And you can even get involved with the series! The 2 Johnnies are putting 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!
