Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell
Season 10 finale Wednesday September 18
Catch up on all of Season 10 at ABC iView
Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell on the ABC is marvellous comedy that combines humour with current affairs analysis.
Running since 2012, it finishes its 10th season on Wednesday, September 18, a remarkable achievement. All episodes from the current season can be seen at ABC iView.
Micallef and his crew of outstanding comedians deliver a weekly program consisting of short skits, interviews with fake political bureaucrats and apologists, eccentric audience members and news analysis.
They lampoon of all of our least favourite right-wing politicians. Frequently, as in the case of Pauline Hanson, it is their own words that demonstrate their bigotry, or mean character and Micallef often delights in their stupidity.
The cast of comic actors working with Micallef effortlessly switch from one role to another while maintaining convincing performances. Each week, they prove themselves some of Australia’s best comic performers.
If you are progressive, or depressed about the state of the world, this is a program to uplift your spirits for at least 30 minutes every week.
