I thought back to some of the sketches from the first episodes of The Late Show.

One was about TV extras making the most of their appearances, and trying to get discovered.

This starred Guy Pearce and Lucinda Cowden. They played people sitting at a table in a shopping centre food court.

Then there was a mini documentary in which Jane Kennedy played a model.

Both of these were shot at the Northland Shopping Centre in Preston, Melbourne.

I believe I know the location of two iconic Late Show moments, mainly to do with Wogs. Both are in Melbourne's northern suburbs.

Uncle Alberto's house, Villa Del Sol, which featured in Understanding Wogs and the Burke's Backyard bit that was hosted by the D-Generation can be found at 50 Chapman Avenue, Glenroy.

The house Santo stands in front of in the Things Wogs Would Never Do ("Credit cards or tasteful homes") is at 373 Brunswick Road, Brunswick.

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, I went looking through the forums and I couldn't find a confirmation. I know that the Chapman Avenue house is for sure the exact house as it still has the painted logs on the concrete balustrade and the words Villa Del Sol. The 373 Brunswick Road was confirmed by matching the house to the shapes of the two surrounding houses; it also hasn't changed at all in shape or colour since the show aired.
Here's the house from 'Things Wogs Would Never Do'. It was for sale 2 years ago.

Job Warehouse has officially shut up shop as of October 2012, I work next door at Play DVD and Music. There's some incredible stories about the history of that place, apparently the family that owns it owns most of the buildings on that end of Bourke st, and has crime connections. No wonder they didn't want a camera crew in there in the 90's!
According to a report in the Sunday Herald Sun, the Job Warehouse is on a list of unused buildings in Melbourne that are in need of a makeover. The list was compiled by the Lord Mayor, Ms Sally Capp.

Of the Job Warehouse, the article described;

"once colourful fabric shop's windows now boarded up."

What was meant by 'colourful' could mean anything.

Apparently, there are plans to restore the Job Warehouse 'to its former glory.'

It was in the news today, that the Burvale Hotel may soon receive a listing on the Victorian Heritage Register.

Only Wobbie's World could have come up with "The Wobcat Tracktor" :lol:

Here's another commercial in case you missed it - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLtBUS5fUow

Gotta love the background music and that fireman

Here's a television commercial for Wobbie's World.

Note the enthusiastic sounding voice over.

A few days ago, I visited Bermagui, as referred to in the Warren Perso film, Bermagui Bronze, in Tony Martin's sketch, The Last Aussie Auteur.

Bermagui is a small town on the south coast of New South Wales.

I was not in Bermagui long enough to find whether there is a surf life saving club there, or for that matter, an annual iron man contest in which gold, silver, or bronze medals are awarded.

Re: The Bolt Bloke

Back in 1998, I was working in a stationery store/ maintenance department at a University.

I used to see invoices from The Bolt Bloke. By this time, The Bolt Bloke logo had changed. The anthropomorphic bolt figure had been replaced by some abstract looking symbol.

Looks like it's still there! It's aged well for 20 years: http://goo.gl/maps/yU4u

I lived in that area for a few years and regularly drove down Sydney Road, but never saw the Dashboard Doctor.
