Storyline

Swift and Shift Couriers is an Australian comedy series created by the writers of Fat Pizza. Based on a courier business in the western suburbs of Sydney, the business is run and staffed by a rag tag collection of layabouts, misfits and socially challenged individuals. Essentially everything that can go wrong does go wrong in typically outrageous fashion. With a mix of cultures and dodgy work ethics this business is an absolute disaster and the show makes for an eclectic viewing experience with a distinct take on Australian humour.

Hilarious but not for touchy Americans!
8 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I laughed so hard during this series. This show has everything not allowed in the USA. Farting, insensitivity to women, handicapped, First Nation people, all ethnics, Muslims, gays, the overweight, little people, bosses, workers, police, municipal employees and customers... everyone equally! And everyone is incompetent. Almost hurtful to watch. All the damage! But the boss is avuncular and an alpha you can just follow along watching him slip and slide through every disastrous working day. All the characters own their idiosyncrasies and never disappoint and delight. Just plain unadulterated fun. Are You Being Served / Trailer Park Boys / 10 Items Or Less / IT Crowd combo.
