I loved making the telly that I made, with the people I made it with. Creating stuff that people really liked from ideas we came up with was such cool fun. I'm really proud of that work. The best TV I ever made was Jeremy [Wells] and I trying to make 10 of our friends laugh.

Havoc finally parted ways with Wells after one final series together — Havoc Luxury Suites and Conference Facility — and the pair left a legacy of groundbreaking, if sometimes controversial television. Among the stunts was one in which they used the news reporter’s van for a fake story about Wells visiting a prostitute. In another, they broke into a factory chicken farm.
