Funny Friday

The main actor here went on to become quite famous as a comedian, a lead role in the movie Babe about a pig, a same sex marriage advocate after coming out as a lesbian and I think she is one of those people you seldom hear a bad word about, Magda Szubanski. She is delightful.

Here she is as Lynne many years ago in the tv show Fast Forward.

  1. I'm unfamiliar with Magda. Though I have heard of the movie Babe.

  2. I'd seen this clip somewhere but it's still funny.
    I love Magda, I became familiar with her acting in "Kath and Kim", she's such a character.

  3. Big Girl's Blouse, as well as Kath & Kim, were very Australian programmes :) I love British programmes, but from time to time it is lovely to see Australian work.

    1. Hels, there is a rawness about Australian comedy, especially back then, that appeals to me.

  4. Of course she's right too! Or am I thinking of something else.

  5. Cro, I think you are right. You must have seen some Aussie comedy.

  6. I mute my speakers when I turn off at night because I dislike the annoying little jingle when I turn on again, and now the buggers won't turn on, they do that sometimes, but there's no point in watching Magda when I can't hear the funny.

  8. Oddly enough I watched a movie at ten pm last night on Foxtel set in Melbourne in the sixies I believe All about the Aussie Barbeque. Yes M S had a great part in it too.

  10. My sister in law is a bit like that.. she has three daughters and has always said men are 'filthy animals' jokingly of course.. her three daughters are all happily married so there were no after effects from it 😀😀😀

    1. Strayer, it was a phrase we used flippantly for some years later.

    1. Ad Rad, is there something wrong with your keyboard with two typos? I bet Nathan's friend is good fun.
