Extravaganza is a two hour comedy variety show taped in Jakarta, Indonesia which has been broadcast by Trans TV on Saturday and Monday night since its debut on May 30, 2004 until November 28, 2009. At the time, it's the most popular comedy variety show in Indonesia.


It also stars four finalists of Kampus Extravaganza, a show to find new characters ('extras') for Extravaganza. They are T.J., Sentot*, Omesh and Ammho*. There are also newer members like Cathy Sharon and Luna Maya

Notes: *(*)No longer starred in Extravaganza


Every shows of Extravaganza will be have guest, for example: Cinta Laura Kiehl, Ungu, etc.

The show owed its success to its apparent creativity and originality, a new, fresh kind of comedy show in Indonesia. This, however is debatable since the format of the show appeared to be strongly based on foreign comedy shows, most prominently the American Saturday Night Live (SNL). Most of the comedic scenario the show used obviously based (sometimes even almost identical, word for word) from jokes circulating in the Internet and common Indonesian jokes, showing actually little in the way of creativity or originality.
