Return to Classic TV Guides

Monday 31 August 1998 — MELBOURNE

The debut of Seven’s sketch comedy series Something Stupid, starring, written and produced by former Fast Forward stars Marg Downey, Magda Szubanski, Jane Turner and Gina Riley. Like Big Girl’s Blouse before it, Something Stupid featured a series of sketches centred on suburban characters Kath and Kim, that would later evolve into a top-rating stand alone series.
