There are few podcasts that could so easily be translated to television as Justin Hamilton’s Can You Take This Photo Please and this pilot of Stand Ups Sit Down will prove good conversation works in many mediums. Can’t wait for this, and I really hope it gets up as a series. From the press release:
Stand Ups Sit Down

In this special episode guests Rove McManus and Wil Anderson sit down with host Justin Hamilton at The Comedy Store in Sydney resulting in some hilarious tales and recollections of stand-up performances with flashbacks to previous shows and gigs.
Rove carved out his legend with Rove Live, and more recently with Rove LA on Foxtel’s FOX8. Wil cemented his reputation on the ABC with The Glasshouse and now the Gruen Transfer series. As fate would have it, both these Australian comedy legends find themselves in LA living out the next chapter in their careers.
