THE HEY HEY IT'S SATURDAY THEME STARTS UP.JOHN BLACKMAN
Liiiivvveee from the internet, it's Hey Hey it's the Tumblies...and here's your host...Daryl Somers!!!!
SOMERS ENTERS TO INSANELY OVER THE TOP APPLAUSE. HE WAVES, SLOWLY WALKS TO HIS DESK AND LINGERS FOR SOMETHING CLOSE TO AN ETERNITY BEFORE DOING THAT THING WHERE HE SHUTS THE BAND UP.SOMERS
Thank you, it's so great to be here to entertain the nation once again. You know, Australia really needs a show that showcases Australian talent, and I'm glad to be back to do that tonight.
WILD APPLAUSE.Now, I can't tell you the amount of emotion that has surrounded me coming back to television...
A PETROL BOMB FLYS THROUGH THE AIR, NARROWLY MISSING SOMERS'S HEAD....but I think you'll agree that there's no better host for these awards than me. We have a very special show for you tonight, and the organisers have very kindly allowed me to design this year's award, which is a rather marvellous tribute to my old friend Ossie Ostrich.
DARYL CONSULTS HIS SCRIPT....Twatter.
DARYL CONSULTS HIS SCRIPT AGAIN.SOMERS
Yes, Twitter. Apparently all you need to do is use the hashtag #tumblies...you'll work it out... Oh, my producer's telling me that so far absolutely no one has done this. Well, I guess it'll pick up. Actually, I might have a go...
DARYL PRODUCES A LAPTOP AND STARTS TYPING.Daryl Somers is absolutely brilliant. More Hey Hey now...
