The Front Bar Grand Final Show
The Front Bar is taking its AFL Grand Final show to the biggest pub in town.
Co-hosts MICK MOLLOY SAM PANG and ANDY MAHER will broadcast their popular Channel 7 footy show from The Espy in St Kilda on September 26.
"It's like the Willy Wonka chocolate factory for beer drinkers. It's an amazing joint. It feels like our show has come full circle. said Malloy.
We started online coming out of the smallest pub in Melbourne a tiny little front bar in the back streets of Richmond and now we're at the biggest pub in Melbourne." The Espy holds special memories for Molloy. He did his first stand-up gig in the pub's Gershwin Room.
"The most amazing out-of-body experience I ever had was standing backstage wondering whether to go on and do the show or run" he said. "The Gershwin Room holds a very sacred place in my heart and my journey."
The Front Bar has struck a chord with a footy-loving audience but Molloy said it had been a slow build that almost failed. Initially the show was screened at various times mainly after games and post-match coverage and struggled to find viewers.
"At one point we had 60000 viewers and I just thought: ‘We're cooked' ."
To Seven's credit he said they "took a chance and put it bang up against (Channel 9's ) The Footy Show."
