According to The Age Green Guide (27/5/10), Talkin’ bout Your Generation will return to Channel Ten in August.

This was mentioned in an article about Charlie Pickering, who is the Gen X captain and a host of The 7pm Project. In the article, Micallef describes Pickering as “clever, fast and funny” and suggests that one day “he’ll be hosting a ‘Tonight’ show … where he can use all his talents.”

Welcome to the website

I’ve set-up this site as a new place for fans of one of the greatest comedians/entertainers to find out the latest news.

Since mid-2009, there has been no activity at the original unofficial-home (, and with no way to contact the webmaster. Hence – this site!

For now, this site is pretty simple, but hopefully I can add to it over the coming days/weeks/months. You can too – email me.
