Thank God You're Here

Postby Machina Maw » Wed 06.07.2006 6:35 am

TGYH is an Australian comedy where some minor celebrities are featured on the show; dressed up and put onto a stage where they have no idea what's about to happen and must improvise their way through it.

So I thought I'd share some segments from the shows because I guess some people might find them amusing. Haha.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=__ORZWZinjY - funniest, in my opinion.

That's all for now. They both contain a tiny bit of swearing, nothing bad though.

Yeah well. Enjoy. :)

That was very funny. Reminds me of "Who's Line is It Anyway?"

So who is Frank Woodley, anyway? That guy was good.

Funny! Yes, very similar to "Who's Line is It Anyway" but with a nice twist.

Any more?

I preferred the british version, at least they changed up the comedians more often. The american version is like "Drew Carey and his friends.. plus sometimes another guy".

Frank Woodley (real name Frank Wood) is part of the famous Aussie duo "Lano and Woodley"
I love these two guys hey! They also had a TV show where they were room-mates and made every day life into a never ending joke. They work so well together.

Here's a little about them... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lano_and_Woodley
And here's a little bit about their show... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_Lano_and_Woodley

That's hilarious. Thanks.

I think the one starring "Josh Lawson" is also funny:

The format is similar to who's line is it anyway, but the humor is more understated. The jokes are more subtle maybe.
