Is this man The One?

If anybody can do it, Shaun can.

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!

Watch it.

Was he wearing a squirrel badge?

Can't say I really noticed, Squib.

I was laughing too hard.

I am grabbing these off iView and will watch when I get the chance. I hope it's better than that similar thing he was doing on SBS a few years back. That felt like it should have been good, but was rather more miss than hit, in my opinion.

Did you make him a badge at some point, Squib?

Funny you should say that, Kettle.
