Who is Doug Bayne?

Doug Bayne is known for his exploits in animation, acting and writing. He has been made famous through his work on ABC television, namely Fly TV, Double the Fist and recently with The Chaser's War on Everything and triple j tv.

Between 1993 and 1997, Doug spent his time in Brisbane, Australia pursuing animation and theatre sports. In 1999, Doug met two other people, Craig Anderson and Bryan Moses, at the Tropfest film festival. Doug had entered a short animation, God saves the Titanic, whilst the other two had their entry, Life in a Datsun.

The three teamed up with another friend, Tony Walters, and in 2000 made a television show, Video Dare. The show was only a semi-success, and lasted one season, mainly due to complaints.

However in 2002, Doug attained a job producing the graphics for Fly TV. When the show was looking for hosts, Doug suggested that his friends do it, and due to a belief by the producers that they were too old, they wore fly masks over their faces. During the show, the group were required to create many short sketches for it. All was going well, and with the success of their work, they were given funding to produce a short comedy series.
