Full Frontal was the third incarnation of long running comedy sketch shows in Australia. Beginning as The DeGeneration (1986) its main players split into The Comedy Company (1988), Fast Foward (1988), and The Late Show (1992). When both series ended they merged into a new show Full Frontal (1993) before moving to a new station later and becoming Totally Full Frontal (1998). A short lived all female cast series called Big Girls Blouse (1994) failed to last after one season. Some cast members such as Mark Mitchell, Kim Gyngel and Eric Bana attempted a solo series based on popular characters, however they where unsuccessful. Shaun Micallef has continued the tradition in many forms over the years in a variety of shows such as The Micallef Program (1998) and Micallef Tonight (2003).
Good evening, universe. Sometimes, it's not easy sitting here. Sometimes it's not easy sitting anywhere, especially if you've got piles.
During the opening title, muck-ups of video covers show the stars of "Fast Forward" posing as different characters (or, at least impersonations of). On a few episodes during the end credits, outtakes of sketches shown during the month are featured.
