Mad as Hell.. Funny as Hell!
29 May 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I recently saw the premiere of Shaun Micallef's return to the ABC.

Shaun is in his element in this show. His opening bit was hilarious. I laughed so hard I often had to rewind it to hear the next joke.

I am thrilled to see Francis Greenslade and Roz Hammond return to working with Shaun. I like the new additions to the team as well.

To a degree the show reminded me of 'The Colbert Report'and 'The Daily Show', with fake interviews but more sketches. It works well. I'm a fan of Colbert but as an Australian I often find myself wanting a show lampooning Australian news and politics.

If you liked 'Newstopia' then you'll enjoy this show.

'MAD AS' IS THE SHOW I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! Thank You Shaun and Co.
