Mike Murphy's nerves are stretched to the limits as his 'aunt' takes him for a drive.

In a comedy sketch filmed for 'The Likes of Mike', presenter Mike Murphy accompanies his 'aunt' (comedian and impressionist David Beggs).

In an exhibition of driving Mikes 'aunt' is a danger to herself, her passenger, and other road users. Blithely ignoring stop signs, not knowing her right from her left, and driving the wrong way up a one-way street are just some of the dangerous driving habits Mike Murphy endures as a front seat passenger.
