Storyline

Craig Eagle and Dailan Evans are the warm-up guys and general dogsbodies on 'The Blaze da Silva Experience', Australia's most popular television variety show. Their job is to hype up the audience for Blaze, then they hang around in the green room trying to put off anyone they think might do a better comedy routine than them. But what they really want is to score a proper guest spot on the show. Throughout the show, we leave the world of Blaze da Silva to find Eagle and Evans performing a series of absurdly playful sketches. Incorporating refreshing, unexpected character pieces, social satire and truly bizarre moments, the minutiae of life all come under the Eagle and Evans radar.

Trivia

The first episode was originally scheduled for transmission on 25 March 2004 (and was listed in some TV guides), but pulled and delayed until 26 August. Only four of the eight episodes were then broadcast before the series was taken off and replaced by a topical comedy program about the Federal election. The series was scheduled to resume with the fifth episode on 5 November 2004, but again this was pulled at the last minute. A DVD containing all eight episodes was released in November 2004, enabling fans to see the rest of the series without having to wait for the ABC to make its mind up on a timeslot. See more »

Laugh out loud funny.

The Australian Broadcasting Commission's mismanagement of this show means that the talent of Eagle and Evans remains a hidden secret. I was just getting into the show when the ABC pulled it off the air because the election was more topical. I bought the DVD and found that Craig and Dailan's characters grew on me even more. Unfortunately the general public never got the chance to warm to the characters over the complete series because the remaining episodes were never aired. The ABC obviously did not learn its lesson from Cath and Kim. The first episodes were not popular at all, but by the end of the series the public had caught on. Now, after 3 seasons the show is a phenomenon and the DVDs sell like hot cakes. Unless Eagle and Evans is given a complete rerun, the ABC has wasted its money making it and this little gem of a comedy show will disappear into obscurity. Favourite skit: the belligerent traffic wardens (I don't know why. It's just so simple and ridiculous, I can't imagine whose brain thinks it up)
