To raise awareness of Mental Health, ABC TV broadcasted Friday Night Crack-Up – a live variety show on Friday 10 October 2014 at 8:30pm for “Mental Health Week” 5 – 12 October.

With various guests and stars from across entertainment and TV, a pre-recorded segment included Rob Sitch as his iconic mock Current Affairs character – Frontline‘s Mike Moore.

Coincidentally, it’s been 20 years since Frontline hit our screens it was originally shown on the ABC.

Where has he been? Moore explains less… err.. moore..

Even Working Dog staffer Ed Kavalee played a role as commentator for the show. Just as he was wrapping up his part of the show, there was a nice throwback in regards to a certain green blazer he was wearing.
