The Mary Whitehouse Experience - Ivan In The Greenhouse

Ivan is the overemotional presenter of Daytime Goodmorning Daytime. Behind his cheerful exterior beats the heart of a violent, emotional psychopath who goes to pieces at the slightest hint of bad news.

Sketch from the 1992 series of The Mary Whitehouse Experience.
