Premier Australian live sketch comedy
3 March 2006 | by blueeyed_crgSee all my reviews

"The Big Gig" was the reason Australians stayed home on Tuesday nights. It never held back on issues that other comedy shows weren't going to touch because it was too controversial. Highlights of this brilliant show were Glynn Nicholas' portrayal of Patsy Biscoe called "Pate Biscuit" with her sidekick "Bongo the clown" (who could forget the classic gruesome reading of a story read in a children's storytelling kind of way followed by Glynn's nonchalant "....and here's a picture." There was the witty "Queensland Cop" as well. Very political. The violent viewers would get their fix by watching "The Empty Pockets" inflict some simulated act of cruelty upon each other, such as hitting the other over the back of the head with a piece of 4-by-2, and for the perverted, a slight intermission of an R-rated movie for the people taping at home. For the musically-minded there were the sensational "Doug Anthony All-Stars" fronted by Paul McDermott and Tim Ferguson (sorry, can't remember the other guys name - apologies). For the fitness freaks, there was the ultimate fitness freak herself, "Candida". Throw in live Australian music acts and you had one hell of a show. Ah, the memories!
