Daithí O'Se and Maura Derrane  may have to play it straight most of the time on The Today Show but they're well able to send themselves up when given the opportunity, as they proved in last night's Republic of Telly.

The pair of them actually act it out pretty well too, unless of course... they aren't acting and Daithi really does have a box of laptops he calls his 'fan-e-mails'.
