Tony Martin and Mick Molloy have discovered that the Premier of Tasmania, Tony Rundle, has declared David Boon Day to honour the famous Tasmanian cricketer. To make sure that all Tasmanians are celebrating, they call a pub in Launceston.  

Tony and Mick often used phone calls as another element in creating a sketch. The theme might relate to a current news event, although the link between that and the business involved would occasionally be a stretch, creating a somewhat confused but comedic result. 

Although the duo were usually well-prepared, the phone call segments were also a good showcase of Tony and Mick’s improvisational skills as well as their comedic chemistry.
