To round off the weekend 25th Anniversary here is a special episode I put together with the help of Bill Stafford, Paul Browne, Karen Hearne, Ben Hennessy, Richie Hayes and Seneiva Magill , with thanks to David Flynn for a special appearance. Enjoy!

Today is the fifth anniversary of the passing of our dear friend and inspiration Bryan Flynn. Here is the video of the Tops Of The Town final 1994 Chaplin scene. No further description is necessary. #genius

From the ‘Tip Tops’ series live from the Gaiety stage here is the ‘Silent Mikes’ comedy mime routine from the 1987 Nokia production. Spearheaded by the legendary Eddie Cody the Silent Mikes had a cult following back in the late 80’s / early 90’s.

Here is the centrepiece scene from the 1994 Waterford Crystal Tops show – Aladdin – which at the time was just a brand new Disney Film. Enjoy!
