Andrew Denton is one of Australia's most successful TV and radio announcers. Denton has recently raised in prominence, with the success of Enough Rope with Andrew Denton, which is taped and screened on ABC every Monday evening. Far from being an "overnight success", Denton has been plugging away in the entertainment and media business for over a decade. He is a rare breed, that is able to be both comical and "deadly" serious, in the same interview, if not the same sentence.
Throughout 1994-95, he hosted and co-produced his own late night, live chat show Called Denton, it offered a collection of offbeat interviews, satirical sketches, uncalled-for violence and topical jokes - perfect viewing for the whole dysfunctional family. In 1995, he also presented two television interview specials: "Andrew Denton Meets Kevin Costner" and "Paul Keating Unplugged," a surprising look at Australia's Prime Minister. Denton also hosted his own morning radio program in Sydney, entitled Andrew Denton Breakfast Show. A "Best of" edition of the show was broadcast around Australia every weekend.
