One of the best Comedy Shows Ever!!!!
5 October 2004 | by gerber90See all my reviews

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
