Combining the best qualities of a neurotic and a chimp, Stay Asleep with Henry and Oscar quickly became one of the least listened to shows on Cardiff’s Xpress Radio, the UK’s first radio station devoted entirely to Union security staff. Attracting all the public enthusiasm of a UKIP rally, Stay Asleep finished its first run in June 2009, and due to overwhelming public demand (i.e. no-one said not to), returned for a special one-off episode in 2011. They’ve since left radio to pursue careers in other worthwhile fields, like standing in for traffic cones, but still meet up occasionally to chat about news, people with giant legs, and animals that can talk, so keep an eye on the BBC – they may end up being famous one day. Not for comedy, of course, but there’s always the chance that Oscar’s inevitable noose-wanking accident will make the News.
