The videos were viewed and enjoyed by Bob Mortimer and The Fast Show's Charlie Higson who gave Way his first television appearances in a Suit You sketch on the Fast Show and in several sketches in "Bang, Bang it's Reeves and Mortimer".

Way went on to write for and perform in many popular television comedy shows, including Mongrels, Extras, "Spaced" and Tittybangbang.
