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.

One of the best Australian comedies
30 April 2001 | by HugoBallSee all my reviews

This is one of the best Australian comedies ever. The sketches are hilarious and every time you watch an episode again you'll notice even more jokes you may have missed the first time. The second series "Totally Full Frontal" is still funny but not as funny as the original series. If you can, see every episode! You won't be disappointed.
