Shaun Mi­callef’s MAD AS HELL

Western Times - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

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.
