You either love it
or hate it and when it comes to Aunty Jack and for those
connoisseurs of the television series, another gem has finally
landed on DVD which features four of the main characters from the
series on their own.
installment features live footage from the 1974 National
Concert Tour "In Bloody Concert" which has Aunty Jack and Thin
Arthur trying to save the day by stopping Kid Eager from stealing
the Golden Glove and become the grandmaster of the concert.
mentioned, the comedy of Aunty Jack is really a hit and miss and
unfortunately the comedy of the series has dated considerably but
for those wanting a tour down memory lane, this DVD is definitely
worth the admission price alone. Some of the ideas that this duo
come up with virtually had me in hysterics but needless to say, the
maturity level on this segment was extremely low.
Other segments on
the disc include Ken Kavanagh which sees the world through the eyes
of a meat butcher and the Farrelly Brothers who take their singing
sheep to New York that actually had me smirking throughout this skit
and last but not least... our favourite, Norman Gunston who is
kidnapped by the Chinese. With a variety of laughs and enough
moments of nerve racking silence, Aunty Jack's Woollongong the Brave
is one strange DVD that I strictly recommend for lovers of classic
Aunty Jack’n the
