{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=Use dmy dates |date=__DATE__ |$B= }} Roy and HG are an Australian comedy duo, comprising Greig Pickhaver in the role of "HG Nelson" and John Doyle as "'Rampaging' Roy Slaven". Their act is an affectionate but irreverent parody of Australia's obsession with sport. Their characters are based on archetypes in sports journalism: Nelson the excitable announcer, Slaven the retired sportsman turned expert commentator. In his 1996 book Petrol, Bait, Ammo & Ice, Pickhaver summarised the duo's comedic style as "making the serious trivial and the trivial serious".<ref>H G Nelson Petrol, bait, ammo & ice Pan Macmillan, Sydney 1996</ref>

This Sporting Life was added to the National Film and Sound Archive's Sounds of Australia registry in 2013.<ref>National Film and Sound Archive: Sounds of Australia.</ref>
