Storyline

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'.

One of the best Comedy Shows Ever!!!!

The late show, It gave people a reason to stay home on a Saturday night. It was a great show, but then again any show with Tommy g, jane, rob, mick, jason, santo, tony, judith and good old alf in it has to be a good show.

But the late show comedy never died even after being taken off the abc. Tommy G, rob and santo went on to create working dog productions creating movies such as the dish and the castle. Jane went on to work on frontline with the working dog boys. Micky, tony went on to the radio then films including bad eggs and crackerjack with Judith.

SO PLEASE BRING BACK THE LATE SHOW ABC
