92 episodes

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, 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!

    30th Anniversary - Season 1 Episode 1 - July 18, 1992

    30th Anniversary - Season 1 Episode 1 - July 18, 1992

    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 other crap that we read your feedback on.
    This podcast is a companion to ChampagneComedy.com website which has been in operation since 1996. What started as a hobby for some, has expanded into a 'go-to' place for people who want to re-live one of the best Australian comedy series that ever graced our television screens - The Late Show.
    So if you want to get your Australian pop culture geek on, download, listen and flashback to a time where life was much more easier to enjoy and laugh at.
    This is a fan discussion podcast with no direct association with Tony, Mick, Rob, Tom, Jane, Santo, Jason, Judith and Co., as well as ABC TV. We're simply just fans.

D Azmo ,

Champagne Nostalgia Joy!

Blah blah influence on life and comedy. Child of 90s. Amazing podcast. Likeable hosts, I just wish I’d seen more of the full episodes.

Some later episodes are more about their mates promoting their own shows, in-jokes and name-dropping, which is a bit of a cringe compared to how humble and affable the actual celebrities are. Worth it anyway. Get that cap!

I didn’t even know I needed this, but I do

Thank you

Still number 4.

Sizzletown and a Tony Martin interview sent me here.
I’m here to stay now.
Even SBS are knocking at your door.

Hasta la vista, little fat kid.
