This short lived attempt at live variety crashed and burned in a spectacular fashion. The program was essentially a lazy Saturday night on the couch, with Molloy and a cast of regular 'experts' in various fields dropping in for a chat. The Largest Living Things and the occasional guest band provided the musical interludes, and the occasional pre-recorded sketch was slotted in. Written by

A Much missed piece of Anti-formula television Comedy that was never appreciated for it's unique attitude and exceptional group of performers in particular Mick Molloy's radio partner and comedic soul mate, Tony Martin whose ability to summarize the week's highs and lows, was satire at it's finest. (The JOHN LAWS fiasco Anybody ?!!!!) That it was axed after only 8 weeks was a disgrace, considering the show's obvious potential and abilities the stunning cast possessed (Bob 'How Delightful' Franklin, Judith Lucy, Dave O'Neil and Mick's own close friends including Chowie,The Morley Brothers ....)
Thankfully Mick and his cohorts have gone onto new and exciting work, but I for one will never forgive the Nine Network for it's appalling treatment of The Mick Molloy Show and it's utterly shameless commitment to profit,ratings and the inconsequential, against Originality,Raw Humour and Honesty. Traits, The Mick Molloy Show had in spades!
