We couldn’t get enough of the crazy antics of Santo Cilauro, Sam Pang, and Ed Kavalee in 2010 for their coverage of the FIFA World Cup. Now, after popular demand, Santo, Sam & Ed are coming back to the idiot box for Santo, Sam & Ed’s Sports Fever!
After a successful series on SBS, covering the soccer in various shapes, ways and forms, Cup Fever! developed a cult following. Ranging from team updates to interviews and out-of-control sketches that verged on the “me no rikey” scale, we would have to wait until 2014 to see the guys strut their stuff again. However, Channel 7 have come to the rescue, and given the guys the same show, but different name ending.
We had such a blast doing Cup Fever! that we couldn’t wait until 2014 to do it all over again.
So now we’re back with Sports Fever!
It’s exactly the same show – 3 blokes at a desk in front of a live audience – same segments and interviews, same shambolic mayhem.
Only a couple of small changes – it’s once a week and will feature ALL INTERNATIONAL sports. Oh, and it’s on Channel 7… so the ads will be in English.
Bring on 2012! Make sure you wear your big spectacle. Sign up to the official Cup Fever Facebook page while you’re at it too.
