The Late show, which only ran for two years was one of the most successful and funny comedy shows ever produced and shown in Australia. It marked the re-grouping of the D-Generation, a comedy group from the late 80's. From the LIVE late night comedy show, came classic moments such as Shitscared, Charlie the wonder dog, The Oz brothers and heaps of other 'Champagne Comedy'.

Did You Know?


Beginning as The DeGeneration (1986) it's main players split into The Comedy Company (1988) and Fast Foward (1988) and The Late Show (1992). When both series ended they merged into a new show Full Frontal (1993) before moving to a new station later and becoming Totally Full Frontal (1998). A short lived all female cast series called Big Girls Blouse (1994) failed to last after 1 season. Some cast members such as Mark Mitchell, Kim Gyngel & Eric Bana attempted a solo series based on popular characters, however they where unsuccessful. Shaun Micallif has continued the tradition in many forms over the years in a variety of shows such as The Micallif Program (1998) & Micallif Tonight (2003). The Late Show (1992) crew mainly went on to be remembered as The Panel (1998) See more »

Greatest Comedy Show Ever
1 May 2003 | by junglejanefaceSee all my reviews

The Late Show is quite frankly the greatest comedy show ever. Fast Foward was great, and it comes close, but the late show has more wit and more idiocy to it.

DEATH!!!! When i mean death, i mean death of laughter. The Dvd is awesome, not enough, but still amazing, it almost killed me. This is so original, i mean even the interviews on the street were death, the award to death goes to that guy who couldnt even talk properly 'uhhh i don know, i tink ahhh (total gibberish) somfing fardar', man that guy killed me. was the greatest thing i ever saw.

Things like sh*tscared, charlie the wonderdog, the drive thru church, the arnold scharzennegger interview, the news interviewing the amazing rob sitch. Death, that guy is a chameleon, no one looks or does better impersonations of people than him.

Saturday night live is nothing compared to this. This is what comedy skits should be like.

I cant explain that much, but anyone who reads this, order the dvd from aus, you will not regret it, it is one of the greatest things ever created by man.

Greatest comedy ever.

i think i'll have a relax tommy.
