When Danny Baker’s Dad Pinned Harry Enfield To The Wall
DANNY Baker tells Radio Times readers about the time he asked Harry Enfield if he had any new characters. Enfield did. He’d created Frank Doberman, who told Baker: “Oi, Baker, no! You may think you’re the heir to the late-night talk-show crown, but to me you’ll always be a loud-mouthed, talentless, balding…”
Danny’s dad Spud was in the room. He caught the last bit, missing the part about it being a joke. They were in the Green Room, where the talent waits to be called onto the TV stage. Enfield was on. When he returned, Spud took hold of him, threatened to throw him down the stairs and was dragged off by security.
Enfield has a newcatchphrase whenever he meets Baker: “Your dad’s not with you, is he?”
