Fenech, the male answer to Kath And Kath, only the start
15 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Fenech is a scriptwriting, comedy genius, so sharp and cutting in his satire of stuff, with an underneath of all too reality. Not much of it here is potent, but just his talent of continuity to keep us laughing, makes up for it. Fenech who I must say can act, does have a comic gift, where again, much of the same stars here, who are seen in his others (can't top Housos), grace the small screen. The show ranges from bad to good acting, and again we have big boobs, pranks, race related hostility, and much other zaniness. One recent show I saw, had a fat girl hooked on Krispy Kreme, unable to leave. I know how that is. Though this was earlier work from Fenech, this paved the way for even funnier stuff, ala: Housos's. Mainly for Houso's and Swift And Shift fans, or very much a divided audience. Well down Paul.
