Good News - Good Laugh
9 December 1998 | by (Perth, Western Australia) – See all my reviews

Good News Week is based on an English show of a similar title. Casting a cynical and often sarcastic view of the mass media, Paul McDermott, Mikey Robbins and Julie McCrossin and teams of guest stars poke fun at the establishment and major event in current affairs! (Please also note - I write this just after being in the audience for the 1998 New Year's Special!)
