Oh man, I watched them in reverse order, Wenky, then Piffy, then Todd...I *highly*recommend doing that way. Wenky was just cringeworthy, Piffy was awesome, but when Todd...omg...I don't want to spoil it for anyone...

I have a vague recollection of this show from my youth.

If nothing else, this thread has served to remind me of how bad Australian TV was in the 90s still is(?).

good lord. if that name didn't get piffy beat up on a regular basis, i'm sure the outfit did. maybe the kid is a sadist & that's why he choose 'bell ringer' as his future profession. of course, i grew up watching the gong show, so what the hell do i know?

Piffy also used to keep Prime Possum company on regional TV.

I love that "Piffy" is his stage name, but "Remi Broadway" is his real name.

I totally going to steal Piffy's act for next year's Britain's Got Talent.
