Legendary Aussie humour
11 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

The Comedy Company is where many of Australia's finest comedians got their big breaks nationally. For a whole decade we couldn't get through a family BBQ without some relative or another doing their impression of Uncle Arthur, Con the Fruiter or Kylie Mole. Some of the sketches are dated now, but if you get the chance it's well worth a watch. Just be prepared not to think too much.
