Andrew Denton is Australia's most intelligent and provocative interviewer. Andrew Denton has recently raised in prominence, with the success of "Enough Rope" with Andrew Denton, screened on the ABC channel. By the end of its first season, 'Enough Rope' proved itself to be intelligent, provocative, must-see TV. Every Monday evening, one million viewers tuned in to see Andrew Denton conduct fascinating interviews with an eclectic range of individuals that included celebrities, politicians, activists, artists and unsung 'ordinary' people with their own compelling stories to tell. Andrew Denton has an uncanny knack of engaging his guests in an engrossing conversation and encouraging them to reveal themselves in unexpected ways.

Far from being an "overnight success", Denton has been plugging away in the entertainment and media business for over a decade.

Andrew Denton hosted and co-produced his own latenight, live chat show. Called "Denton," it offered a collection of offbeat interviews, satirical sketches, uncalled-for violence and topical jokes - perfect viewing for the whole dysfunctional family.

Andrew Denton also presented two television interview specials: "Andrew Denton Meets Kevin Costner" and "Paul Keating Unplugged," a surprising look at Australia's then Prime Minister.

Andrew Denton also hosted his own morning radio program in Sydney, entitled "Andrew Denton Breakfast Show." A "Best of" edition of the show was broadcast around Australia every weekend.

Andrew Denton co-produced and hosted "The Logies," Australia's television awards over two years. That same year he co-produced and hosted a one-hour prime-time interview special "Andrew Denton in the Deep End with Ian Thorpe."

James Castrission

Cas is an Aussie Explorer constantly pushing the boundaries of human endurance.

Most recently, on the 26th January 2012, he made history by completing the longest unsupportedpolar expedition of all time, alongside his best mate, Jonesy. In 100 years of polar exploration no-one had EVER walked from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole and back without assistance. Many had tried, none had succeeded. After 89 gruelling days they made it back to the coast after having skied 2275km with everything they needed to survive in the harshest environment on Earth.

Justin Jones

Justin Jones (or other wise affectionately known as Jonesy) is one of Australia’s premier motivational speakers and extreme adventurers. Constantly pushing the boundaries of human endurance he has undertaken a number of large scale expeditions over the past 14 years. Two in particular have captured global acclaim and attention, setting 2 Guinness World records.

Ben Pettingill

Imagine waking up blind. One moment you can see, and in the next moment, your vision is made up only of childhood memories. At the tender age of 16, this became a reality for Ben Pettingill when overnight he lost 98% of his eyesight to a rare genetic syndrome, Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy. While the shock, then grief of losing one's eyesight cannot be discounted, once Ben processed his new reality he realised that he had to make a choice that would define the rest of his life. Ben believed that a blind man could see, and his miracle was the activation of ‘True Vision' and 'Limitless Vision'. Vision enabled through purpose, perception and empowered decision making.

Upon completing her degree, Holly relocated to Sydney taking time to pursue her passion for acting.
