Spicks and Specks TV Series


Spicks and Specks was an Australian music-themed comedic television quiz show. It aired on ABC1 at 8:30 on Wednesday nights, with the show repeated on Thursdays on ABC2 at 8pm. The previous year's season was repeated every Friday at 2:30 pm on ABC1. It was filmed at ABC Melbourne's Gordon Street studios.

The show was hosted by stand-up comedian Adam Hills who posed questions to two teams each headed by a permanent team captain, actor/comedian Alan Brough and Mildura-raised radio announcer Myf Warhurst. They each had two guest panelists, generally one from the world of music and one from comedy. They varied from week to week, but regular guests included Hamish Blake, Tim Minchin, Frank Woodley, Colin Lane, Ross Noble, James Morrison, Renée Geyer, Ella Hooper, Meshel Laurie, Denise Scott and Dave O'Neil. Blake appeared more often than any other guest panelist,[1] and his comparative lack of musical knowledge was a running gag.
