How to set up a comedy room

 

So the thought of hosting a regular comedy night or event has tempted you like the aroma of a pie, wafting from a windowsill?

The Making of a Bogan Doco

Remember that time Bogan Bingo went viral but not in the usual way we go viral which involves a burning sensation and a quick trip down to the doctors. No this is when we went looking for Australia's Next Top Bogan and wound up with way more attention than we thought was possible. Luckily there was a doco crew on hand, the legends at Silver Squid Productions, that were able to capture the magic on camera. Have a look at how the audition process went down and how top Bogans Simmo n Moondog were able to weed out the true blue from the true dickhead. Special thanks to everyone involved in making this sweet short film and especially to all the bogans out there for making it possible!
