Champagne Comedy Podcast

Champagne Comedy Podcast

This is the ChampagneComedy.com podcast, and heading our channel tonight... From 1992 to 1993, the ABC broadcast 40 episodes of The Late Show, consisting of Melbourne Revue graduates who got their first taste on TV as The D-Generation. Originally a low-rating comedy show that was live across Australia full of cheap jokes, cheap props and bad acting, the show gained a cult following and inspired many comedians and performers to help where they got to today. Also the fans. Definitely the fans. The fan owned and operated site 'Champagne Comedy' has been online in some type of form since the early days of dial-up in 1996. Thanks to the evolution of the internet, 'Champagne Comedy' continues to pay tribute to the cast and crew of The Late Show, Frontline, The D-Generation and their other projects they create to make us all laugh. ** We scrutinise and overanalyse every joke and everything, so don't say we didn't warn you. ** Join the dedicated fans on this podcast as we raise a glass and toast champagne sketch comedy! Note: this podcast is not associated with ABC, Working Dog and other associates. www.champagnecomedy.com Produced by Matt Fulton Productions. mattfulton.com.au Hosted on Acast.

Throughout the run of Frontline, Elliot Rhodes performed a catchy jingle at the end of the week, making the audience laugh and annoying the heck out of Mike Moore.

The Champagne Comedy Podcast managed to convince the man behind Elliot - Boris Conley - a highly talented pianist and performer - to come on the podcast and chat about behind the scenes, how he got the role, and what makes the humourist tick.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first episode of The Late Show broadcast Saturday July 18, 1992 on ABC TV, we decided to remaster our first episode of the Champagne Comedy Podcast, re-editing and adding audio to define it more.


Gone are our long-winded self-indulgent introductions, awkward silences, gaps and more-than-tedious tangents. In with more audio samples we should've used in the first place, tighter edits, and o...
