Micallef Tonight

Show Summary

Shaun Micallef set out to prove that variety isn't dead, with the return of a traditional Tonight Show moulded with his own brand of subtle humour and non-traditional celebrity guest interviews and musical acts. Lasting just 13 weeks on Australia's highest rated TV network, Micallef proved to a loyal group of fans that he is the king of late night wit and sarcasm, and picked up some new followers who will, no doubt, await eagerly his return to Australian entertainment in whatever form.

The hilarious and almost parody show had a guest list featuring not only the cream of the Australian entertainment industry, but the yoghurt and the cheese as well, including Barry Humphries, Kath & Kim, Jamie Durie, Sigrid Thornton, Dannii Minogue, Gary Sweet, Bridie Carter, Shakaya, Gerard Depardieu, Shane Warne, Alison Whyte, David Campbell, Jose Feliciano, Jimeoin, Erik Thomson, Melissa George, Judith Lucy, Matt Welsh, Kerri-Anne Kennerly, Warren & Gavin, Percy Sledge, Delta Goodrem, George Greegan, Ben Elton, Caroline Craig, John McEnroe, Amiel, Anthony LaPaglia, Glenn Shorrock, Beeb Birtles, Graham Goble, Craig David, Marcus Graham, Nicole Livingstone, David Bridie, Michael McKean, Seann William Scott, Placebo, Mick Molloy, Bob Franklin, Blair McDonough, Amity Dry, Clive James, Tony Martin, The Superjesus, Todd Woodbridge, Simon Tedeschi, Dave Graney, Clare Moore, Ricky Martin, Keith Urban, Dave O'Neil and many more!

Micallef Tonight also featured a refreshingly different assortment of segments, including "Shaun on his High Horse", "Audience Participa-Shaun", "Stolen Mailbag" and heaps of other unexpected laughs, such as leaving Melissa George, who was live via satellite from Hollywood, on hold for over five minutes, and the infamous Jamie Durie interview, or lack of.
