The return of MicallefMikey 5 comments
Shaun Micallef's unique brand of comedy is one you either completely misunderstand or completely get, meaning you will either think he is a complete prat or a comedic genius. I come from the latter camp.
If you are a Micallef fan and like I yearn for his return, it seems our prayers have been answered. Commencing Wednesday nights from October the 10th SBS is airing 'Newstopia', which is described as 'A new comedy series by Shaun Micallef who stars as anchorman in this satirical half hour news bulletin'.
By that description it sounds like it could be an Australian version of 'The Daily Show', which can't be all that bad.
Not familiar with Micallef's work? Try these classics from his failed late night show a few years ago, though don't expect Newstopia to be anything like these.
