The Seven Network is proud to announce the launch of a groundbreaking new show LET LOOSE LIVE - pure sketch comedy at its funniest, but now LIVE!!

From the network which delivered the legendary Fast Forward LET LOOSE LIVE will broadcast direct from the studios of Channel Seven Melbourne.

The show will reunite the talents of Fast Forward stars Michael Veitch, Peter Moon and Marg Downey, and introduce regulars Jane Hall, Dave O'Neill, Andrew Curry, Colin Lane, Queenie Van de Zandt, Kate McLennan, Julie Eckersley and Paul Calleja to name a few.

Each week a celebrity host will set a cracking pace introducing parodies and recurring characters.

"We're very excited to be combining such established and accomplished comedy performers and producers with some fresh new faces. Going out live each week continues our commitment to provide new and different shows. It will be nerve wracking because anything can happen but we've received a great response from guests wanting to step up to the plate and host each week," says Seven's Head of Development Brad Lyons.

"We're absolutely terrified. Our jocks are somewhat stressed, and the laundry's working overtime," says producer Mark Ruse. "Thankfully we're privileged to have on board a fantastic mix of performers."

"The three elements of this show are LIVE, LIVE, and LIVE," concurs producer Stephen Luby. "We're all excited by the prospect of the fun - and the danger - of going live. In one way or another it's going to be very funny."

LET LOOSE LIVE is a Seven Network/Southern Star Ruby Entertainment program, produced by Mark Ruse (producer: Fast Forward, co-producer: Kath & Kim, The Games) and Stephen Luby (producer: Full Frontal co-producer: Crackerjack, The Extra) and directed by Ted Emery (Fast Forward, Kath & Kim). Head writer is AWGIE and Logie Award winner Brendan Luno (Fast Forward).
