Great to have The Chaser boys back
Doorstop heckling, clips of speeches, and the Gillard GPS. But the prize goes to Julie Bishop for making fun of her own "Death Stare."
Oh how we’ve missed them…
The Chaser boys were back last night on ABC1 and in top form. They say absence makes the heart grown fonder and it was very true here. While it wasn’t necessarily their funniest material it had plenty of good laughs. And we have really needed somebody to cut this campaign down to size.
Their doorstop heckling and use of clips from campaign speeches was wicked fun.
Did Julia Gillard really tell the NSW Nurses’ Association “And of course I look forward to moving forward with you, moving forward together”?
Their sketches on police action for anybody driving in reverse or doing the backstroke was a hoot. The ‘Gillard GPS’ with its rigid instructions to “Move. Forward. Move. Forward” was priceless.
Lateline‘s Tony Jones was a good sport for his opening introduction, as was 7:30 Report‘s Kerry O’Brien.
But the prize has to go to Liberal’s Deputy Leader Julie Bishop who fronted up to make a mockery of her own “Death Stare.”
Bishop faced off in a staring competition with Chas Licciardello, followed by another with a statue of a garden gnome. Brilliant stuff. And much funnier than Abbott’s Hey Hey appearance without any of the hype.
Yes We Canberra! is repeated tonight at 9:15pm on ABC2 and returns to ABC1 next week.
