I almost blacked out due to laughing so hard and frequently.
14 November 2004 | by (QLD, Australia) – See all my reviews

I almost blacked out due to laughing so hard and frequently, that's got to mean its funny if anything does!

I just saw this show half an hour ago on its debut screening here in Oz, and I must say... This is top shelf comedy. Of course if you didn't like the two seasons (All Aussie Adventures) you wouldn't like this, but I can't remember anyone I've met who hasn't loved Russel Coights adventures. The physical comedy (like the stuff ups Russel has) is really funny, and they seem to be going to even larger (and more hilarious) results. But shows 'spoken comedy' is really well written, such as his (Russel's) explanations which tend to leave the others even more puzzled then they were to begin with. Not only is the obvious gags side splittingly funny, but the subtle stuff is also extremely humorous. It's just... well... I guess you get what I'm saying.

The guys from The Pannel can do no wrong with all of their projects for film and television and I hope to see their immense talent in the very near future. Especially more adventures with Russel Coight!

This is pure Aussie humour at its best.
