Australian Tumbleweed Awards 2014 – Best Comedy. WINNER: Mad As Hell – 60.00%. Voter Comments: “Mad as Hell and Clarke and Dawe are still the only half decent comedy shows in Australia. How odd that other shows don’t try to draw inspiration from the form and substance of these shows, instead trying to mimic American or British approaches. Australia is unique, and it does need to have its own thing. MaH and C&D tap closely into something about Australia, whatever that is.” “Almost perfect! (Last couple of shows this past run were a bit ragged, but overall quality spectacular. World class stuff from Shaun and Gary. Funnier than John Oliver, too, which I think is an interesting comparison.)” “Mad As Hell remains the best thing on Australian television as Shaun Micallef seems to effortlessly wind satire, absurdism, biting commentary, and the wild abandon of pure sketch comedy into a miraculous weekly brew. If he did nothing else, that ‘ZINGER!’ sting with a lion’s roar behind it was a gift to the nation.” RUNNERS-UP: Clarke & Dawe – 20.83%, Upper Middle Bogan – 19.17%. LAST YEAR’S WINNER: Mad As Hell.
