7 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

This show is seriously funny. It does not claim to be art it's sole function is to make us laugh and to make its connections rich. It succeeds is making us laugh, and if Paul the Producer/Director/Writer/Actor is to believed, it has succeeded in making him rich.

On the serious side it shows Australia's maturity in that our our ethnic communities can make fun of themselves as well as having a go at we Skips without offending anyone and we can all laugh.
