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.

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.
