Politics was a major focus for comedy on the show and Martin/Molloy cleverly juggled smart political satire with low-brow humour.

The show often showcased Tony Martin’s comedically exaggerated impressions of politicians. 

A regular segment was 'Mick Molloy’s Celebrity Corner', where Mick adopted a rare ‘straight-man’ role and interviewed Tony impersonating a celebrity, often a politician. 

A frequent target in 1995 was then-Prime Minister Paul Keating, here joining Mick a week after his government handed down the federal budget.
