I did pass Jase entering the Virgin Lounge at Melbourne Airport a month or so ago. Stopped and said G'day. Wasn't game to ask about his thoughts on the subject....

Would be great to see, but i don't think a show like TLS would feel the same today.

How about a 21st birthday bash ?

I guess the 20 year reunion special did not happen

If there *was* to be a 20 year reunion special (hell, I'm happy with a best-of), I could easily die a happy man then and there. That's all I'd need.

:) That's okay.

Reading between the lines, at least one of the duo seems to be someone who'd bear a grudge, which makes a cosey resolution to the "feud" unlikely in the medium term.

And now for an ironic moment. From the Martin/Molloy website back when they were putting out Poop Chute, I guess maybe they were infuriated that interviewers would ask this very question? I mean, I guess ironically Tony and Mick were trying to present their work together and were just tired of being haunted by the spectre of their older work overshadowing their new work together!



What is Poop Chute?

It's the new album from Martin/Molloy.

Who?

Tony Martin and Mick Molloy - hosts of Martin/Molloy, the top-rated and award-winning drive-time radio show heard weekday afternoons on 20 stations around the country.

Oh right - isn't that the show where they seem to think shouting and using bad language is funny?

Er...you remember they used to be on The Late Show, Saturday nights on the ABC.

Ah yes, now that was a good show - when's that coming back?

It's not - they do this radio show now - they've been doing it for two years. Their last album "The Brown Album" went Gold in three weeks, sold over 50,000 copies and won the ARIA Award for Best Comedy Album.

Right...right...The Late Show - I love that stunt-man thing they used to do.

Like The Brown Album, Poop Chute is a double CD or cassette, yet retails for the price of a single. It contains over 2 and a quarter hours of material from Martin/Molloy which is a new world-record for a comedy album. It contains 87 individual tracks and took Mick, Tony and Martin/Molloy Production Supervisor Vicki Marr over 5 months to assemble from over 100 hours of material!

Really? That time they got Joan Kirner to sing that song on The Late Show - now that was funny. Is that on this thing?

No! It's a brand-new album! Poop Chute!

"Poop Chute"...That's a bit immature isn't it?

The title makes perfect sense once you've listened to the album, which you really should do - it features as many of Mick & Tony's raves as they could get past the lawyers, there's a couple of their inexplicably popular "phone calls", several of their favourite characters like Tum & Phul, Clacker and The Wedgies, as well as over 20 of their most-requested sketches including "Humpy", "Patrick Stewart At The Drive-Thru", "Caution Squad", "Barnyard Introductions" and "The Tablets With The Really Long Name". There's choice bits about Michael Jackson, Stephen Hawking's wedding night, Paula Yates, Dr Jack Kervorkian, Mr Nude Australia, David Copperfield, Bjork, Ian Botham, That bloke with the stretchy arms off The X.Files, Danni Minogues's breasts, Antonio Banderas' genitals and that mysterious "Core of Sphagnum" from the panty shield commercials. Believe it or not that's just the beginning - there's also a couple of surprise cameos, a highly insulting interview purportedly with Sir Donald Bradman and several appearances from Mick & Tony's long-time booth announcer Pete Smith.

Ah yes, now he appeared on The Late Show didn't he?

It's Poop Chute! It's out now! It's bloody good value! It's perfect for Christmas!

They should bring that Late Show back you know. Bargearse - now that was funny!

Okay, thanks for clearing that up.

I will now publish a retraction.

I was wrong.

Comedians can, it seems be quite a sensitive bunch, often having fallings out over 'creative differences.'

Forgive me for looking at the rift between the two involved in said feud through the prism of my own life, but when I've had differences with my closest friends, we have eventually been able to talk things out, and resolve our issues.
The mistake in your argument is the phrase "closest friends". Even back during the Martin / Molloy days they made it very clear in interviews that they steered clear of each other outside working hours. Not that they weren't friends, but their friendship was based around work. Once that went sour, it's hardly like they'd be kept together by a shared loved of the Richmond Football Club or dodgy 80s films.
