The Australian Comedy we have all been waiting for!
6 September 2018 | by UncleRicktahSee all my reviews

When it comes to Aussie comedies, lately we've been as dry as a nuns nasty. Luckily we have this gorgeous saving grace thats snagged a ripper from 60 out on a rainy day at the G!

The Merger is true-blue in style and grace as it shows the heart that was put into this is real! We have true Aussies on Screen and behind the camera with Aussie Jokes and Aussie Topics ... and to top it off we have the magnificent sherrin being backed by the glorious Roosters! The Refugees are more than welcome in Australia and the Merger happily sticks it up the Right Wing in an incredibly comedic and heartfelt fashion. Shout outs to Fayssal as he kicks the 6 pointer into our Loving hearts!

Carn the Maroon, White and Blue! Lets make sure this filum gets high up into the specky Zone!
