Ryan and Ronnie
The programme consisted of sketches and stand-up comedy sessions in which Ronnie took the role of "straight man" to Ryan's clowning. There was also music, from the duo themselves and regular guests such as Welsh singer Margaret Williams. One spoof song was based on the theme of the movie "Paint Your Wagon," only it appeared in the show as something like "Iwa spawn under a one-drains tar". Each programme ended with an episode of a spoof soap opera entitled "Our House", in which Ryan played the mother of the family and Ronnie the father. Myfanwy Talog played their daughter, "Phyllis Doris".
The running joke in "Our House" was that "Mam" doted on her son, Nigel Wyn, originally played by Derek Boote and, latterly, Bryn Williams, and forgave him anything, whilst being strict with Phyllis Doris, whom she always addressed as "you brazen hussy". Both children were played by adults, the former appearing dressed in school uniform. The father, "Will", was the silent type, but each week, Nigel Wyn would address him as "Will" and "Will" would say, "Don't call Will on your father". (The phrase "call on" is a direct translation from the Welsh "Paid a galw Wil ar dy dad!"). With its bizarre and off-beat, almost surreal humour, "Our House" has achieved an iconic status.
On one occasion, the show's guest star Ken Dodd also appeared as a character in "Our House".
An S4C film about Ryan and Ronnie won several awards at the BAFTA Cymru awards ceremony in May 2010.
