Hello and Welcome to Friday Frolykz, our end of the week wind down thread.
Recently I wrote about a show called Masterchef which is currently screening on Channel Ten.
Despite feeling initially quite seduced by the sheer spectator sport of watching the contestants relentlessy humiliate themselves, and in some cases, simply burst into tears, the show was a one hit wonder for me.
It’s the smarmy sanctimonious hosts that did it. So I haven’t been back since. I’m sure Channel Ten will be bitterly disappointed.
Another show that I’ve stumbled on recently is The Gruen Transfer. This is a show about advertising, which by all accounts could border on being mildly entertaining if it wasn’t for the show’s host Wil Anderson.
For the uninitiated, Wil Anderson is a comedian, or at least, he keeps telling us he is.
The reality is that he’s just a complete and utter w@nker.
In fact words cannot express, the words I cannot express to describe how completely unfunny Wil Anderson is.
Wil Anderson started off his career as a “political journalist” which I suppose gives him a bit of street cred, and then ditched that to become a stand-up comedian, or at least that’s what he would have us believe.
By way of first hand experience, he was once “the entertainment” at a luncheon I attended in Sydney about ten years ago, and it was without a doubt the worst performance of any so called “comedian” I have ever witnessed.
Even the complimentary grog didn’t defuse from the fact that he is complete crap. He didn’t raise a murmur from the audience of 100 or so, but persevered as if he was the funniest thing he had ever encountered.
Wil, evidently, thinks that he’s really funny, as evidenced by the fact that he constantly laughs at his own jokes, sometimes hysterically so. And I guess if he thinks he’s funny, that’s all that really matters.
He also has a penchant for wearing black nail varnish and bare feet with thongs with a suit as if to say “Wow, look at me, I’m a real out there, kind of hip dude”.
Way to go Wil. 🙄
He’s also appeared in one of the most embarrassing TV shows to grace the Australian airwaves – “The Glass House” also known as “That Complete Pile of Humourless Shite”.
This had Wil once again practically apoplectic with his own unique style of “zany” humour, coupled with the moronic drone of another complete f**wit Dave Huges.
And when he’s not pissing himself, he’s telling us about what it’s like to do drugs “You know like, when you’re really stoned and you go to McDonalds….”
Yeah, that’s really funny Wil..I guess no one’s really lived such a wild “out there” life like you.. 🙄
A while back, he dragged his sorry ass ‘round the nation to non-sold out audiences for a show called Kill Wil. Another completely self-indulgent tour of mediocre muck.
Kill Wil. If only we did when we had the chance.
