As I write this, David Armstrong (aka Double A) is reading the midday news on 3AW. The last I heard of Dennis Twilight (aka Dennis Tamaris) was last summer. He was on 3AW's Weekend Break with Grubby and Dee Dee, as a guest on a legal segment.

I'm sure I've mentioned this elsewhere here, but I was a huge DLB fan - I've still got both their tapes and their crappy G'N R inspired t-shirt somewhere. I even taped their recent 'reunion' special on RRR... which, to be honest, wasn't all that special

Leapin' Larry is currently writing a fair bit of stuff for The Age, Brett Duck is Nine News' Brett McLeod, Double A is still reading the news on some radio station I only ever seem to hear on public transport, and Dennis Twilight is... out there somewhere.

Hi everyone ,
I've just found this forum and I'm glad to see we have some UK based people who appreciate this bastion of Australian comedy greatness, which was the D Generation.

And guess what, many, many, many moons ago, on a different continent, a land full of enormous furniture warehouses, Panel Vans and Big bins, I was a very small part of all this malarkey, I kid you not!
Oh yes dear reader, as an ABC employee, I plied my trade regularly serving up visual delights for these very shows from the hallowed studios at Ripponlea.

Think G-Spot the dog, think Cat-scans and exploding Santo heads, ...yes I was there......it all now seems like a distant dream.....!
In the wise words of Santo Cilauro during the credit roll on series 2 ep 1, "..the credits are just an ego trip for the writers and a whole lot of other hangers on, ..who's ever heard of Jeff Smart hey"!

HA HA, THATS ME!
What a laugh!

Yep that’s me alright, one of the hangers on!
Glad to see that my small efforts haven’t been without merit after all these years!

Did Mike Mead look like a dried out junkie to anyone else bar me?
I don't know. How would he have scored a job working on a children's show if he had that kind of history?
