ITV film crews were filming in the Viper Rooms in Harrogate earlier this week for scenes (hilarious ones!) for the feature length DVD special ‘Paddy and Marlon’s big night in’ being released on the 14th November.
They did not not give much away about what went on at the Viper Rooms, but there are some very special ‘co stars’ which included a 30 foot high inflatable gorilla.
Produced by Tony Hammond, directed by Michael Lacey and written by Paul Roundell, Paddy and Marlon’s Big Night In follows the events of a not so quiet night in the country, and a morning after anybody would want to forget!
Rhona’s desperate for a girls’ night out, a bit of adult-only company and a few drinks.
Paddy’s desperate for a boys’ night out, a bit of adult-only company and a few drinks.
SOMEONE’s got to be left minding the baby and NO ONE’S giving in!
A fed up Paddy and Marlon eventually lose out and the babysitting begins – only this is 2011, and children are welcome in pubs nowadays – so one quick beer at the Woolpack won’t matter. Or will it?
Producer, Tony Hammond, says:
Dominic and Mark are exceptional actors with genius comedy timing. The Big Night In project is a brilliantly written spin-off giving them even more scope to show their true comedic skills.
Paul’s script is laugh out loud funny and I know the audience will be crying, albeit with tears of laughter, as Paddy and Marlon get to grips with the morning after the night before!
Also starring Zoe Henry (Rhona Goskirk), Sammy Winward (Katie Sugden), Natalie Anderson (Alicia Gallagher), Natalie J Robb (Moira Barton), Tony Audenshaw (Bob Hope), Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper).
Filming has taken place since August.
