Vale Rosehaven Rest in Power edition

Rosehaven is over. It takes with it yet another era in Australian comedy. Not a particularly funny era mind you, or even an especially memorable one; remember that episode where they had the banter then a shot of the Tasmanian countryside then we got some more banter? Good times. Seriously though, when even articles praising... Read More »

Australia’s latest mockumentary

Might as well Question Everything

It’s not a good sign when the ABC starts promoting your replacement when you’ve still got weeks to go. And what’s this?

It’s a classic... Read More »

In an appearance on Molloy, Wil Anderson said a few things which tell us more about why Question Everything is so deeply, deeply... Read More »

Everything is Questions

We’re only two weeks in and it’s rapidly becoming clear that despite being titled Question Everything, nobody at the ABC got around to questioning why this show needed to be made. Hands up who thought the comedy panel show format needs explainers about Taliban social media propaganda? It’s that kind of thinking that makes all... Read More »

Everything’s Gonna Be…Axed

Everything’s Gonna Be Okay's axing is a good thing. It wasn’t funny and struggled to hold the audience’s attention for more than 10... Read More »
