Swift & Shift Couriers Season 2

Madman have released season two of Paul (Mr. Politically Incorrect but boy is he funny) Fenech's SWIFT & SHIFT COURIERS, which has been airing on SBS. However bare in mind that this comedy is not for everyone and the humour of Paul Fenech is quite juvenile at best and you'll either hate it or love it.

Needless to say, he doesn't pull any punches when it comes to his creations and if you enjoyed Fat Pizza or his current creations HOUSOS, than Swift & Shift Couriers will definitely be up your alley. Even though I enjoy the comedy of Fenech, some of his sketches fail horribly, whereas other sketches will have you in comedic stitches. Season 2 of Swift & Shift Couriers is no exception to this rule.


The beautiful ladies of Swift & Shift Couriers

For the uninitiated, Swift & Shift revolves around a dodgy courier company in the wonderful fictional suburb of Hashfield in Sydney. It is here where this shonky company operates and ALL of its employees get up to all sorts of mischief and anecdotes which is where the over the top humour comes into play. It's foul, it's funny and sometimes it's fantastic!

Even the atmosphere of the series such as the cheap dodgy sets only highlights the comedy of Fenech, especially the sometimes ridiculous acting involved by everyone. Although there are a few new faces in Season 2 of Swift & Shift Couriers, the gags still come a million miles per hour and lots of characters get their moment to shine. Whether it's Manager Keith (Ian Turpie) or Dave the angry dwarf or my favourite Mario (Fenech), there's something strangely disturbing and entertaining about their interpretation of the world.


The sexy men of Swift & Shift Couriers

Although the funniest moment in Swift & Shift was season one where Mario was being chased by one of the big "Gorilla" looking boys from the courier company. It was like Donkey Kong with music to boot. This will be burned in my memory forever... of course season 2 of Swift and Shift has another classic moment where Mario and the guys arrange a stripper for their manager Keith. Keith is also the manager we would all love to have because he doesn't really give a toss about work... like most Australians.

Unfortunately things don't go according to plan, especially when the workplace harassment officer pays a visit. Needless to say, it almost hits the fan at Swift & Shift couriers. Classic Fenech! There is even a love story going on in the background (or is this stalking) with Mario having the hots for Melissa (Melissa Tkautz) and somehow they end up in Las Vegas.

Final Thoughts?

Given the evidence, Swift & Shift Couriers Season 2 is definitely not for everyone and I'm sure only a small percentage of the Australian population will piss themselves with laughter and for the rest... well, some things are best left unsaid. If you enjoyed Fat Pizza, Housos or the previous series of Swift & Shift than this is a must have collection. It's bad but for psychological deranged people like myself... it's Australian comedy at its worst and best. Ha! Is Fenech a modern Paul Hogan? I'll leave this for you to decide!
