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.

When travelling through the rain forests of far north Queensland, the consumption of locally-baked, home-cooked biscuits is strongly advised against. If Josephine Ellis (formerly Mrs Russell Coight) is watching and wishes to make contact, please log on to www.bigcoight.com See more »
Glen Robbins portrayal of the character "Russel Coight" is brilliant. Russel Coight is a parody of the many Australian identities such as the bushtucker man, malcom douglas to name a few, who decided to make documentaries about the Australian outback. Loosely based upon the Leylands series. Glen Robbins puts Russel Coight into embarrassing situations which shows the funny side of human nature when put into awkward and uncomfortable situations. We see Russel's lies and cover ups as everything doesn't go to plan. The way that Russels character is portrayed is just pure genius. If you ever get the chance to see this then definitely watch it or hire/buy the DVD.
