Whatever Happened To That Guy? is an Australian comedy series produced for The Comedy Channel. The series is a self-referential comedy series about the diminishing spotlight of a once-glorious comic, played by Peter Moon. [1]

Synopsis

Peter Moon, once a comedy icon and star of television sketch comedy Fast Forward and breakfast radio, is now unemployed and facing a feeling of general redundancy and that of having ‘too much time on his hands’. Moon now seeks distraction in many forms such as a crusading consumer, keen bargain hunter; potential entrepreneur, inventor and budding film maker. [2]

The show features some performers playing themselves, and others in broader comedic cameos, including Michael Veitch, Red Symons, John Blackman, Bruce Beresford, Greg McLean, Alyce Platt, Peter Smith and Wilbur Wilde. Moon's own family also appears.

This show could be considered to be the Australian equivalent to Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm.
