Storyline

The series began screening shortly after the similar sketch comedy program Fast Forward (from which Full Frontal derived) ended. Full Frontal retained the same general format of Fast Forward. It was formatted in a way such as to create the effect of someone continuously channel surfing; after the punchline of each sketch, it would abruptly switch to the next as if the viewer had switched channels.

Trivia

Full Frontal was the 3rd incarnation of long running comedy sketch shows in Australia. Beginning as The DeGeneration (1986) it's main players split into The Comedy Company (1988) and Fast Foward (1988). 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). See more »

It's mental madness
24 December 1998 | by Overlord-4See all my reviews

Although this show is full of people with mental illnesses, it's still funny, but who found these people. One part that's not funny is when they copy other shows and make it more funny, I wouldn't like myself being imitated and making fun of me by these mentally gifted people, they're totally out of control. I only liked some episodes.
