Shaun Micallef’s MAD AS HELL
Wednesday, abc, 8.30pm
These days, it’s debatable as to what constitutes the news. From terrible disasters in Third World countries that hardly get a mention, to stories on a zoo’s latest edition to the family, the scope is wide. In the world of politics, it often feels like we are witnessing a circus side show, rather than a competent government. If the whole hurrah leaves you irritated and bored, Shaun Micallef’s irreverent news satire is the solution. Featuring a bunch of kooky and absurd characters, and Micallef’s dry yet delightfully kooky wit, Mad As Hell brandishes the funny stick at the latest developments in world news. Done with expert precision, Micallef is the master of absurd laughs.
