Ellen, a ghostwriter working for the ex-prime minister of Australia Andrew Dugdale, tries to immerse herself in the lives of the ex-pm, his family and associates in a vain attempt at writing his biography for him.
I recently saw the premiere of Shaun Micallef's return to the ABC.
Shaun is in his element in this show. His opening bit was hilarious. I laughed so hard I often had to rewind it to hear the next joke.
I am thrilled to see Francis Greenslade and Roz Hammond return to working with Shaun. I like the new additions to the team as well.
To a degree the show reminded me of 'The Colbert Report'and 'The Daily Show', with fake interviews but more sketches. It works well. I'm a fan of Colbert but as an Australian I often find myself wanting a show lampooning Australian news and politics.
If you liked 'Newstopia' then you'll enjoy this show.
'MAD AS' IS THE SHOW I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! Thank You Shaun and Co.
