Classic ABC Comedy from the 70's
8 July 2003 | by (Gold Coast, Australia) – See all my reviews

Often controversial sketch show starring the cross dressing Aunty Jack who would dress as a pantomime dame, wear one boxing glove and ride a motor bike, his/her catchphrase was "I'll rip yer bloody arm off". The show began life as a couple of pilot radio shows for kids which the ABC considered too scary for children.
