Come (back) any time…
The classic theatre sports series by Working Dog which threw Australian comedians and entertainers into random and unpredictable scenarios which they had to bluff their way out of is back… in a way.
Hosted by Shane Bourne and judged by Tom Gleisner, the four season series ran from 2006 to 2009 (Season One to Three on Channel 10, Season Four on Channel 7) and was a ratings bonanza, with the format sold internationally, and DVD box set releases entering family homes.
Some victims… I mean stars that walked through the blue door and introduced into the scene with a “Thank God You’re Here!” were Tony Martin, Fifi Box, Angus Sampson, Hamish Blake, Shaun Micallef and Santo Cilauro, just to name a few. As well as an early entry point for Ed Kavalee as a member of the TGYH improv team.
If you’ve lost your DVDs, you can now watch all of Season One on 10 Play, streaming now for free.
Fingers crossed the rest of the seasons become available on 10 Play!
Update July 6, 2020: All Four seasons are now on 10 Play.
Not forgetting Shaun Micallef’s appearances on TGYH. One standout was Shaun as a children’s television presenter.
