Following the enormous success of Hey Hey It’s Saturday’s 50th and tongue-in-cheek 100th Anniversary specials, tune in over two big nights for a celebration of one of the show’s most popular segments Red Faces next week.
Celebrate the madness and mayhem that wasRed Faces as host Daryl Somers takes a fun look back at some of the most funny, wild and peculiar acts ever to grace the Red Faces stage.
Daryl Somers said: “We put these shows together with a box of tissues by our side to wipe away the tears of laughter. Re-living so many funny moments of Red Faces was an absolute blast and I thank the thousands of acts that made it so”.
Red Faces started out as a send up of New Faces, a popular talent show at the time, and soon took on a life of its own.
Each week, a cavalcade of famous faces joined the “Prince of Punishment” Red Symons and his infamous gong on the judging panel to be entertained, shocked and amused by the weird, wonderful and downright crazy acts.
Hear from Red Faces regulars such as Danni Minogue, Jo Beth Taylor, Paul Mercurio, Rhonda Burchmore and Vince Sorrenti about their time as judges, alongside an endless list of superstars such as Will Smith, Jason Donovan, Kylie Minogue, Hugh Grant, Tina Turner, Johnny Depp, Shaquille O’Neal, Sir Cliff Richard, Dame Edna Everage, Ricky Martin, Sir Bob Geldof, Samantha Fox, Guy Pearce, Boy George, Julian Lennon, Jean Claude Van Damme, Mel Gibson, Sir Ian Botham, Fabio, Linda Evangelista, Russell Crowe and John McEnroe.
We also feature audience favourites such as The Music Men, Chaotic Choir, The Bobsled Team, The Amazing Nigel and Harry and the Vegemite Kid.
