To celebrate the pair’s 30 years of friendship – they were introduced at Cambridge by mutual friend Emma Thompson – the channel is bringing them together onscreen for the first time in 15 years.
During the show the pair reveal fascinating insights into their friendship and their careers, and take a look back at some of their sketches, interspersed with hilarious clips from their work.
Fry said he was “delighted to be given the opportunity to retread the 30 years Hugh and I have known each other and worked together. It was a great joy reminiscing about our times together and I hope GOLD viewers enjoy watching us grow older and older…”
