THE best current affairs show currently.
15 November 2007 | by mneum2See all my reviews

Indeed, very possibly the funniest show on Australian television at the moment, though there are some close contenders, though none on commercial television.

Shaun has always been one my most favourite comediennes on television, due to his cleverness, but this show really takes the cake.

Not just laugh-out-loud funny in most "sketches", but very, very, cutting in its insights. Every news story picks exactly the correct thing to pick on, make-fun of, and satirizes to make even the most horrific story of the week hilarious.

A genius at work once again. The only thing I could pick on, is could we perhaps have an interview conducted by Francics knee? I am eagerly awaiting the spin-off series of "Inspector Herring", Rex has a new challenger.
