Who the hell do we think we are?

Double Z Creative is Ciarán Morrison and Mick O’Hara. We’re best known as our TV alien alter ego’s Zig and Zag. Since teaming up (as humans) in 1987 we have written, produced and performed comedy-based programming for all the major broadcasters including BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Nickelodeon, MTV, RTÉ and Starz (U.S.A) and we have a car boot full of awards to prove it.

We have a range of expertise from creating and performing original characters such as Zig and Zag, Podge and Rodge and Bronx Bunny to writing in all fields; television series, feature films, children’s animation, documentaries, live entertainment shows, books, commercials, theatre shows and of course No.1 chart hits…our track record is second to none!
