Guy Pearce is a pretty big name...he used to headline movies.  This was extremely cheesy and I give it props (4/5) for being so unique, but the only thing that kept me watching was that Mark Bonnano from Aunty Donna was in it.

I was shocked by how not funny it was, given all that they had to work with, but I wasn't sure if it was just that I don't get Aussie humor.

I love the Aussie humor show Aunty Donna, which is extremely oddball and weird, but I'm not very familiar with the rest of Aussie style humor.  It seemed like in this video they were trying way, way too hard and I kind of flipped through some of their other episodes and it seemed the same way.  I can very much see that Mark Bonnano had a major creative role in this Wizards of Aus.

 

Interesting note:  Aunty Donna is so popular in Australia and New Zealand that they actually have a live show where they simply re-enact all of their videos.  It's baffling to me.  Some of their shit is absolute garbage but they also have some great gems:

There's a comedy show in Canada called "Royal Canadian Air Farce" (it may be cancelled now) that ran for years and was never, ever funny to me. But it was popular amongst the older crowd who still find "The Three Stooges" funny. I think they're all dead now.

There will come a day when the entertainment we enjoy will also come to pass. The times they are a-chaning.

Watched all of them. Thought it was pretty good. 

Had a few chuckles, definitely weird at parts, but that's what kept me clicking on the next EP.
