Not as good as the others but Chris Lilley fans will like it

Full of swearing and sex, Chris Lilley new shows doesn’t quite do as well as his other but is still funny in the Chris Lilley way. This is a must see to Chris Lilley fans, otherwise you can skip this average comedy if you are not into him.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
