Quote from: Famous Mortimer on February 23, 2023, 02:22:23 PM(for stuff that doesn't already have its own)First up, mentioned in the Taskmaster thread, is "Guy Montgomery's Guy Mont-Spelling Bee". He did a few of these on Youtube, with some pretty big names (Rose Matafeo and Paul F Tompkins, among them) but was open about trying to get it on the TV, and he did so. If you've seen NZ Taskmaster or "Have You Been Paying Attention?", you'll recognise most of the people, but I like them all so it's great. Didn't care for the round where you have to guess how a 6 year-old would spell a random word, because there didn't seem to be much chance for comedy in it, but the rest of it was lovely. Did you like it? Anything else tickling your fancy from that part of the world?
Quote from: Father Bananas on February 23, 2023, 09:51:55 PMThere was something I watched a few years back Please Like Me written by Josh Thomas, self indulgent in places but I thought it was perfectly acceptable if not riotously good.
Quote from: 13 schoolyards on February 24, 2023, 05:17:04 AMHaving spoken to someone who's seen about half of the first episode of the new Australian sketch show We Interrupt This Broadcast (it starts next week), the verdict seems to be "it's better than you might expect". It's supposedly all just one-joke television parody skits, so the fast pace means it doesn't linger when a sketch flops.Standards for Australian television sketch comedy (that doesn't involve Shaun Micallef) have been rock bottom for years, so maybe things are starting to turn around

Quote from: neveragain on February 23, 2023, 03:49:32 PMIt's pretty well-known... well, it's known, I'd say. Aussie stuff doesn't get enough attention round the UK.
