Duo Hamish Blake and Cleo's Bachelor of the Year (2006) Andy Lee not only host a radio show, but are writers and creators of this excellent new current affairs parody "Real Stories".
Blake and Lee with other great Australian comedians including Ryan Shelton arrive on our screens every Tuesday night at 9 (repeats of season one air after Rove on Sunday). Narrated by Greg Fleet, guest appearances include Rove McManus, Blair McDonough and Dave O'Neil.
Topics include street accountants, a man grounded for the past 15 years and still stuck at home, William Shakespeare's musical "The King hath farted", New Zealand's flood crisis, the Australian Insitute of Sayings and "Hey Dad" the movie. Most recent are call centre parrots, backyard makeover disasters, underground choir movement and the horrifying addiction of skill testing.
"You've got to resist the thrill, to test your skill"-Blake.
Blake and Lee are fantastic and show their versatility each week with the interchangeable characters that they portray in each real story. The host Jennifer Adams is also a great comedian in her own right.
It's definitely worth watching. I give it 9/10. I look forward to a second SEASON of this SERIES. I hope it gets picked up so we can watch more of Blake and Lee's comic genius.
