While Derryn Hinch is now part of the Seven Network, his alter-ego once played by Steve Vizard could be popping up on ONE.
From Thursday night ONE will be screening Fast Forward: Funniest Send-Ups.
The Seven sketch show ran from 1989 to 1992 and is still lauded as one of our all-time funniest sketch shows. The cast was a who’s who of comedians: Magda Szubanski, Gina Riley, Jane Turner, Michael Veitch, Peter Moon, Marg Downey, Steve Vizard, Glenn Robbins, Eric Bana and more…
The parodies the show put together were ruthless, tackling everything from The Flintstones, I Dream of Jeannie and Doctor Who to Home and Away, Are You Being Served? and Skippy.
Artist Services was later bought out by Granada which has since become ITV Studios Australia.
ONE begins with two episodes tomorrow night, 9:30pm Thursday January 31st.
