Classic Comedy if ever there was
29 January 2002 | by (Mudgee, Australia) – See all my reviews

Comedy doesn't get much better than Acropolis Now - the lives of the people who work in a greek cafe in Melbourne, Australia is a funny story in more than one way. The characters all have hilarious voices and habits, and the plot is extremely funny - but the cleverest bit is the way the show both makes fun of, and shows it is proud of, the Greek community while using Greek cast.

The main cast of the show (Nick Giannopoulos, Mary Coustas, Georgie Parker et al) were at the time little known but the four years of Acropolis Now was what boosted their fame in Australia today. This show is a great reminder of the days when Australia had a huge comedic industry - where there now are hardly any comedies. This show is definitely recommended to anyone who has enjoyed an Australian sketch comedy show in the past, or even who hasn't

This is classic comedy (at it's best!). Acropolis Now is one of those few shows that doesn't age, and that will still be funny for many years to come, or even perhaps for eternity...
