Episode two of topical satire written specially for #eastgateathome by Les Morss and Tim Wilcock, otherwise known as The Two Moronnies. The Borders-based duo specialise in setting new lyrics to familiar tunes and parodying the torrent of gaffes that emerge from leaders across the political and celebrity spectrum. Their frequent appearances in the Borders have been augmented with trips to the Edinburgh Fringe, the Big Burns Bash in Dumfries and even a headline appearance at the Dunedin Fringe in New Zealand. All profits go to local, national, or international good causes. They have also performed a number of benefit shows for the Eastgate back when live theatre was a part of our world. They hope to be invited back in the very near future.
