The inside story of The Doug Anthony All Stars then and now. The no-holds-barred true story behind how the bad boys of Australian comedy reunited - weaker, sicker, funnier, older...but not wiser. Under the guise of his alter ego Flacco, Paul Livingston basked in the reflected glory of Tim Ferguson, Paul McDermott and Richard Fidler and their anarchic comedy incarnation the Doug Anthony All Stars throughout the heady years of the late 80's and into the early 90's. Flacco and Paul now find themselves wrenched out of comfortable obscure retirement and treading the boards once more with Timothy Ferguson and Paul McDermott, two of the original members of D.A.A.S., on a sell-out reunion tour that the Sydney Morning Herald last year announced as the most important comedy event since 1995.
