  • THE best comedy show currently on television. Period.

    This is without a doubt the best live television I have ever seen. To an outsider, the show isn't that easy to explain, but once you view an episode, you instantly become hooked.

    The premise of the show revolves around a door through which a celebrity will walk through. This door will lead them into a room, where a scene is being acted out that they know nothing about, and they then have to try and bluff their way through the scene. Each episode has four celebrities, generally comedians, or those working in comic situations. The scenes are varied. It could be a talk show, meeting their partner's parents, on a spaceship, in a war, in a press conference, the variations are endless. The results are hilarious. After each celebrity has performed, all four go in to a group challenge. And the celebrity deemed to have performed the best by the judge, Tom Gleisner, wins the trophy.

    The best performers, in my view, have been Frank Woodley, Peter Rowsthorn (his scene as captain of a cruise ship in peril was a classic), Angus Sampson (the definitive Thank God You're Here contestant), Julia Zemiro, Shaun Michallef (his most recent all-in challenge as a boy scout was hilarious - suggesting tattoos instead of badges), and Matthew Newton (in his winning performance as an illegal drag racer).

    This is one of the funniest shows that you could ever see, and is one of my personal favourite shows of all time.
