Serious side of comedy reunion
Tick F***ing Tock, ABC, Tuesday at 9.30pm
THE Doug Anthony Allstars were comedy superstars until Tim Ferguson (pictured) unexpectedly pulled the plug, breaking the hearts of Paul McDermott and Richard Fidler.
Years later they discovered Tim had Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
The three men put aside their differences to reunite and live the glory days again – all the while knowing that time is not on their side.
This two-part documentary series chronicles the story of the bad boys of Australian comedy – and for the first time they confront how Tim’s MS impacted on their friendships at each step to international stardom.
This is also an enduring love story between Tim and Paul, two of our greatest creative minds with the same confrontational attitude they’ve always had.
