Airdate: Housos

Here comes more Paul Fenech comedy with Melissa Tkautz, Ian Turpie, Amanda Keller and Angry Anderson once again.

Paul Fenech’s next comedy series, Housos, will air on SBS ONE from 10pm Monday 24 October.

As the successor to his Swift & Shift Couriers comedy, this series has already attracted some attention after it was featured in a story on A Current Affair.

The working class characters will be performed once more by many of Fenech’s regulars: Jason ‘Jabba’ Davis, Kev the Kiwi Taumata, Habib Tahir, Melissa Tkautz, Ian Turpie, Amanda Keller and Angry Anderson plus Elle Dawe and Paul Fenech himself.

Housos is the story of Shazza, Dazza, Franky and Kylie – best mates from “the block”. Sure, they drink away their problems, they might even have frequent domestic disputes and the occasional altercation with their neighbours, but down on the block it’s all for one and one for all.

Housos follows the riotously funny, day-to-day adventures of the residents of a fictional housing commission block – Sunnyvale. They battle the cops, they scam Centrelink, they even have the odd threesome, but once down with the crew in the hood then it is “Sunnyvale for life”.

To be a houso means that life is far from easy; ambulances avoid their suburbs because kids throw rocks at them, dad owes thousands to the local bikies and the de facto needs bail money . . . again. Much of a houso’s time is spent working hard to avoid actual work!

From the creator ofFat Pizza and Swift and Shift Couriers, Housos is the brain child of Paul Fenech – the assassin of political correctness.

“Housos is my best comedy to date. This show is straight out of the headlines. I’ve given up pizza and now chiko rolls and vegemite all the way for me! This is the show your mum will tell you not to watch . . . but then you will sneak off to a corner and watch it anyway,” said Paul Fenech.

Housos is a fashion statement from Australia’s dodgiest suburbs. It will provide transportation to a world where self-medicating, poorly educated, unemployed residents in a uniform of thongs, hoodies and Ugg boots are not only the norm; they are a fact of life. They may be trashy but they are literally as thick as thieves.

Housos brings the real face of Australia’s suburban underbelly to life.

  1. I used to live in Western Sydney for about 30 years of my life and the depiction of the ‘housos’ is quite accurate which makes it all the more funny. Now I am a Qlder, they just don’t understand. Fully sic, love it, we need more Aussie comedy on TV, so over the American sh…!!!!
