Nick has a wonderful Terry Thomas like cadence when he talks about his approach to editing Australian English.

Why use a fancy pants Teutonic word when we have a perfectly good English word laying around doing nothing?

The Heckler - New Australian comedy


Interview with Ben Plazzer, director of new Australian comedy movie The Heckler. It’s about swapping bodies and swapping jokes. Onstage and backstage.  I’m easily distracted and really liked it. You might too. Ben Plazzer gives you some tips on directing in a toilet and keeping stand up comics from overacting.

Bunga Bunga 14 - Tim Ferguson & Maynard

IMG 4498 medium

This is an epic opus of Bunga Bunga proportions this time. Tim Ferguson & Maynard journey through the world for 90 minutes with no clear destination or known format. If you aren’t offended by something Tim says in this episode, which contains lots of bad language, drug use and ‘Allo ‘Allo, he has failed. NSFW, really.
