COMEDY SILICON VALLEY
8. 3 0PM, C OMEDY C HANNEL
What’s not to like about sharp scripts, wickedly funny lines and situations combined with brilliant and incisive satire on the tech industry? Tonight, Gavin (Matt Ross) creates yet more interference hindering Pied Piper’s expansion. Meanwhile, the guys could be threatened by a nosy neighbour.
8MMM 9. 3 0PM, ABC Middling comedy-come-indigenous cultural awareness primer about an outback Aboriginal radio station. Fair-skinned Aboriginal DJ Jampajimpa, who only recently discovered his heritage, is trying way too hard to fit in and turns to blackface … Sadly thanks to his overuse of fake tan, he invents “orangeface”.
THE WEEKLY WITH CHARLIE PICKERING 8. 3 0PM, ABC While there’s been a bit of hoo-ha o-ha over its similarities to LastWeekTonightonight WithJohnOliver, that show itselfself started life as a rip-off of The DailyShow. So who cares? The real question is whether it’s funny. And so far the comedy’s been merely OK, but the show has plenty of potential and I’m looking forward to Pickering (right) getting into his groove.
