Inevitably, when people of a certain background talk about the current dire state of Australian television, the cry goes up.
"Where is the Australian Jon Stewart? Where is our version of The Daily Show?"
Well my friends, I watched the first episode of Shaun Micallef's Mad As Hell last Friday and I'm here to say; if it's not quite at The Daily Show level, then it's getting pretty damn close.
True, some of the sketches just didn't work but it's all worth it to see Micallef, one of Australia's funniest, cleverest, most acerbic comedians in full flight.
The first episode also contained one of the funniest zingers about Kerry O'Brien EVAH!
