The Krankies
The Krankies are a Scottish comedy duo who enjoyed success
as a cabaret act in the 1970s and on television in the 1980s,
featuring in their own television shows and releasing their own
music single. They have regularly appeared in pantomime. The
duo comprises wife Janette Tough and her husband Ian. As the
Krankies they portray schoolboy Wee Jimmy Krankie (Janette),
and paternal figure Ian Krankie (Ian), though in their comedy act
they also portray other characters. Beginning in the 1990s, they
regularly appeared as The Krankies in episodes of the BBC
comedy series French and Saunders.
