Returning: Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell

By David Knox on January 29, 2014 / Filed Under Programming 10

11madShaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell returns for its third season on ABC1 next month.

“New Government. Same show,” notes the publicity release.

Returning with Micallef is the ensemble cast of Francis Greenslade, Roz Hammond, Veronica Milsom, Emily Taheny and Stephen Hall.

Back for a third season, this dose of salts for your weekly digest of news and current affairs is the cure for all that ails you; a panacea for the ills of the world and a vaccination against the general malaise and ennui brought on by existence itself.

Surprising, refreshing and invigorating, Mad as Hell remains funnier than 7.30, more informative than Tractor Monkeys and over twice as fast as Q & A.

8pm Wednesday, 12 February ABC1.

    Don’t forget to check the EPG for each show for funny listings.

    Great news, love this show. Can’t wait to see what jokes he makes at Abbott’s expense. As others have said, such an easy target.

    I’m looking forward to this.
    As FKlein says, with such an easy target as Tony Abbott, Shaun Micallef (and the Roast for that matter – also returning I hope?) should be on good form.

    Of course, lampooning and criticising Abbott’s government is sure to attract accusations of bias from the right-wingers; will the ABC be permitted to give Shaun free rein?

    Magnificent stuff.

    Interesting that the ABC refer to Tractor Monkeys in the programme wrap. Could it be a sign that it’s definitely back again too this year..?

    Finally. Something to watch on TV.

    This season of Mad as hell is going to be so good. Tony Abbott is such an easy person to make fun of. So many opportunities for jokes to be made with that guy.

    Awesome. Really looking forward to having this back on air.
