Fantastic
5 January 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Fantastic. I was blown away when I saw this and finally found the true potential of Australian comedy.

I myself am working on a sitcom and have been very much influenced by this classic Aussie sketch comedy.

It has rhythm and a certain beat and manages to keep everything related and interesting. It was hilarious!

Grahame Bond is fantastic as the rude yet surprisingly sensitive Aunty Jack. Rory O'Donoghue is incredible as Thin Arthur, the well spoken, thin - hence the name - character. Garry McDonald plays Kid Eager, who is also very good, though I have not had a chance to see much of his episodes. John Derum was always my favourite as Narrator Neville. The actors all also play various other characters in various, hilarious sketches. Sandra McGregor was brilliant (I can't believe I nearly forgot her).

I recommend this classic that's not afraid to do something different, and still keeps it very funny. The Aunty Jack Show is a refreshing jolt that is a reminder of what Australian comedy can do. This classic is much better than some of the sh*t (excuse my french)that is televised today.

Utterly fantastic and a must see for people with a satirical taste in comedy. Great, and appropriate, acting, as well as writing. Do not miss this if you have the chance.
