Spoof Australian outback adventure series. Russell Coight is Australia's most inept outback adventurer. Whether it's roping steers, crossing flooded rivers, tackling wild crocs, finding bush tucker or helping travelers out of the mud, Russell Coight will do it... badly. Written by
The idea for the show came from a series of skits from The Late Show (1992) entitled "Wallaby Jack". See more »
There is a running gag through out the serious of deliberate continuity and factual errors. For example when two people go to shake hands there is a cut to a close up shot of two hands shaking, but it always the same clip no matter who we see about to shake hands. See more »
The difference between seeing someone and NOT seeing someone in the outback is 110 square kilometers. That's alotta land, and not many people. Depending on where you are within that land.If you're in a town, the numbers go right up.

A one word answer to my question. Yes. This is the very best comedy I have seen EVER. I was flicking through the channels on my freeview box and happened to catch this on ftn, thinking it was another Steve Irwin documentary. I soon realized it wasn't as I was quickly on the floor desperately trying to stop laughing. If you like laugh-out-loud comedy with lines like, "Brandon traveled North, then East, then South and then West at which point he realized he was going in circles." Or, "He named the mountain, Mt. Disappointment after his wife, Inge." Then this is definitely for you. 10/10
