A question for all you Australians out there: What is the best Australian sketch comedy show?

The Micallef program and Full Frontal were the only good ones ever.

So my answer is they both suck.

Comedy Inc, by far.

Channel 7's got a new sketch comedy coming out soon, too. What's its name again? The Big Bite?

the late show. how can you miss that? comedy inc and skithouse don't even come into the picture. fast forward was great, and full frontal was good too, but it's hard to judge, seeing as i was young when it was on telly, and that could have made it seem more funny. who knows?

Sketch commedy has always been lame, but these two newer ones are oh so much worse. It's just bad, cheap-to-make television.

He is cool  cool Not really a sketch show though.

Rolf Harris did sketches on his cartoon show, that was cool, or it seemed cool when I was younger  tongue

Both skitHOUSE and Comedy Inc seem to be running out of ideas. I can't see them lasting for a very long time.

Fast Forward became Full Frontal and Full Frontal then evolved into totally full frontal, it lasted about 10 years. It was great, always topical, and didnt always resort to toilet humor like comedy inc.

Admittedly Skithouse is better than comedy inc. seems a bit wittier, I like it better because I like pete and Korrin from Rove.

Excuse me.....? You, you can not have just said what I thought you just said... Because, there's only two ways you could have gotten confused about there and both of them are death penalty worthy, Monty Python was a pommie show and one of the few good things to come out of their country, not Australian.

Full Frontal and all other alias was the greatest Aussie skit show of all time, Comedy Inc is bloody shocking while Skithouse, is actually pretty damn funny, it's got some really clever, out of the middle of nowhere, stuff in it.

What's wrong with you people? I mean how can you resist Corinne Grant? Oh wait, I know how.. Comedy Inc still sucks though., and Skithouse, I mean come on, Batman and Robin breaking up and Batman acting like a jealous ex-boyfriend and getting drunk when they're invited to the same party and Robin brings his new superhero along, that's comedy gold right there.

Full frontal and Totally Full Frontal were the best. REmember Milo, and that idiot eating a Pack of Samboys who always hassled Julia Zemano(ic?) if she put out? I much prefer Skithouse, because its not always the same old jokes, Comedy Inc is too predictable. But neither are anywhere near as funny totally full frontal. Back in year 6 pissing myself laughing each week was one of the highlights of the week. I have a few  eps on tape

Well, it's marginally better than Skithouse, although they're both good.

Anyone else watch that Fast Forward special last night?  laff

Did anyone ever see the final of Full Frontal on channel 10? They aired it quietly, i only realised it was on half way through. It was kinda weird. There wernt many sketches, it was like they were reworking the show, and filming the crew. And then at the end, they just told em all the sohw has been cancelled, GO HOME  laff

nah nah, this was totally full frontal, the last in the line of sketch shows. 7 sold it to 10 and 10 sorta ran it into the ground. I remember the first sketch. IT was a take off of a WW2 prisoner exchange. About the swap. And 7 were the nazi's   laff

I have not seen Fast Forward, I taped it last Thursday but I have not watched it yet.

There seems to be no skitHouse on tonight. Instead they have a hour of Raymond repeats frown

MMMMMM, rather odd dontcha think. I barely noticed. I actually rarely watch skithouse. I keep Forgetting. I like to wach Fronteir house on ABC, its the only reality Tv show ive ever liked. Maybe its because its not a competition, its just ppl living as if back in the olden days.
