Nova 96.9’s Fitzy & Wippa will host a special ‘one off’ late night talk show on TEN tonight, Friday 27 November at 11pm.
The show will also be available to view exclusively online at www.tenplay.com.au.
With an array of high profile guests, including Joel Creasey, Guy Sebastian and the first chat with Sam Burgess following his highly anticipated return to the NRL with the Rabbitohs, Up Reasonably Late with Fitzy & Wippa will be packed full of laughs, entertainment and a few surprises.
Wippa said, “We’re very excited. Any time after 7pm on a Friday is considered ‘up unreasonably late’ to my wife, but I assured her it’s a timeslot in demand – she’ll have to decide between watching us and Finding Bigfoot on Foxtel.”
Comedian Adam Hills provided his support for the show, adding, “Until you see someone really fail on television you don’t realise how much work goes into it, so I think purely because it will make the rest of us look good, you guys should definitely have a talk show.”
Following Wippa’s first foray into television with On the Couch with Wippa and inspired by some of the talk show greats, Wippa & Fitzy saw an opportunity to put together their own show. Ideas including The Nova Office and The Bachelor Pet were thrown out for a slicker show, featuring well-known guests and showcasing one of the busiest and most endearing radio breakfast teams.
Paul Leadon, Network Ten Head of Comedy, said, “Look, they’re cheap, they’re desperate and they work next door. It’s a no-brainer for Ten”.
