Late O’Clock with Rob Hunter


Late O'ClockLate O’Clock is Rob’s horrifyingly awkward talk show. The interviews are a bit like those conducted by Shaun Micallef, Andy Kaufman, Zach Galifianakis and anyone else who has ever been an awkward butthole to a guest.

Rob started writing questions in 2006 but it wasn’t until 2010 that someone agreed to be a guest on his show. That guest was television’s Lehmo and the interview can be seen on Rob’s Youtube channel along with many other interviews and sketches.

Rob also performs the show live at various comedy festivals. The show was first performed at the 2011 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and quickly became a hit. Here are some (mostly) nice things people wrote:

One of the more enjoyable experiences at this year’s festival …A must see.” -Watch Out For.

…a delightfully prickly assault. …Genius.” -The AU Review

Both guests called their host a word beginning with ‘C’. The word wasn’t ‘clever’.” -The Pun

Now one of the most popular running shows of the festival, the guest list has now included Hannah Gadsby, Stephen K Amos, Adam Hills, DeAnne Smith, Tony Martin, Ryan “Toadfish” Moloney, Felicity Ward, Dave Callan, Josie Long, The Beards, Celia Pacquola, Cal Wilson, Allday, Ronny Chieng, Luke McGregor, Sam Simmons and children’s musical superstar Peter Combe!

Rob’s pal Jason Chong helped launch the series. You can see more of his stuff by clicking here. (He’s foreign.) The good people at Stupid Old Studios in Melbourne now film and edit the show because Rob moved there.
