This excerpt features Tony Martin and Mick Molloy on stage at the 1996 ARIA Awards accepting the award for Best Comedy Release for their debut album of material taken from Martin/Molloy, The Brown Album.

Mick acknowledges the show’s toilet humour, as well as announcing the title of their 'difficult second album', Poop Chute

The album was extremely popular, receiving gold accreditation by ARIA for selling 35,000 copies.

Even in a short awards acceptance speech, you get a sense of what made Martin/Molloy work as a comedy team. Tony's sharp wit – it takes the audience a few seconds to catch up to his Wiggles quip – is complemented beautifully by Mick's more laidback and affable comic style.
