Shaun Micallef’s MAD AS HELL
Wednesday, abc, 8.30pm
Phew. Shaun Micallef’s (pictured) madcap round-up of the news – whether real or slightly imagined for artistic purposes – has been sorely missed. A lot has happened since series six of the comedian’s news satire juggernaut wrapped up last year: namely, former reality-TV star Donald Trump has become US President. Luckily, Micallef is back to help us make “sense” of it all. The comedian’s absurdist comedy is always rapid-fire sharp and clever and there’s certainly no shortage of targets to take down this time around. Also featuring the talents of Francis Greenslade and Roz Hammond, the Logie Awardwinning show is sure to return with a spring in its step.
