Wine time

Here’s what you feel like on a Monday morning: wine – and lots of it. Failing that, there’s the web series Wine, a bottle shared is a problem halved, created by and starring Jess Harris (Twentysomething) and Emily Taheny (Mad As Hell), in which two friends, Harry and Bridget, meet regularly in inner Melbourne bars to...

Comedy blap on the radar

Even in the risk averse comedy climate that is Australia’s, you’d think a show featuring Gina Reilly and Hamish Blake could get funding. But no, Ryan Shelton’s new web series How To Life has been funded by Britain’s Channel 4 and is currently available online as part of Comedy Blaps. Comedy Blaps is Channel 4’s... Read More »

Cliff 2 Hanger

The last episode of Ryan Shelton’s latest Instagram series Cliff 2 will be uploaded today. What will happen? Has Rebrecca killed Cliff? And is there a future in this kind of... Read More »

Instant gratification

Having recently checked out Ryan Shelton's work on Instagram we started to wonder what other Aussie-made comedy was available on the popular image-sharing platform. The answer? Not a whole... Read More »

Short and to the Point

Geography Keeps Repeating

Wacky foodstuffs? “Sports” that involve sneaking up behind people as they walk down the street? It must be the latest Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year! Or any of the previous ones, it’s not like anyone can tell the difference any more. “C’mon grumbleweeds,” says a totally fictitious person gleefully resurrecting a pun we first heard... Read More »

Hamish & Andy Are Dead

Well, not literally dead as far as we know, though we wouldn’t exactly be surprised to hear that one of their hilarious overseas stunts had ended with some shady character pulling a gun and both of the wacky funsters taking a dirt nap. Imagine the outpouring of grief that would follow – state funeral for... Read More »

The Scumbus Has Something For Everyone

There’s a theory that says the perfect length for a comedy film is somewhere just south of 80 minutes. Any longer than that and you need to start adding non-comedic story and character elements to keep people watching, as there seems to be an inbuilt intolerance for silly antics once they drag on much longer...

Vale Hamish & Andy’s Euro Gap Year

Well, that’s Hamish & Andy screwed. To explain further: like pretty much everything in life, once a comedian’s act stops growing it starts dying. Once you settle in to doing the same thing again and again, no matter how successful you are at it eventually people will get bored. It’s a great problem to have... Read More »

Beans Beans, The Musical Fruit…

Chris Lilley’s been doing a lot of press for the US launch of Angry Boys lately, and when he hasn’t been talking about hanging out with teenagers at parties or painting Australia as a racist land that just doesn’t get him* he’s been talking up his global achievements in a manner that’s more than a...
