Hysterical Comedy

The first reaction to any MDA action is usually anger – then after letting it sink in for a little bit, we thought it really funny.

The production company thinks it’s a new category of advisory, this “satirical comedy” rating. And we’re scouring through the script to see what the hells I’ve written that has made the people at the MDA give us this groundbreaking honor.

It’s not the sex, we took that out. There is no violence except for one scene, and that’s pretty mild. I took out the bit about the PM’s pink wardrobe, so that can’t be it, unless they were reading an older version of the script.

What this actually means is that people under 16 have to be accompanied by older people, and the news that this is “satirical comedy” has to be publicized on ticketing outlets as well as at the theatre doors.

Still, I’m quite thrilled we’ve gotten this advisory, even though I’ve written R18 shows (Kumar) before.

But if you really must, here’s a run down on what the iPhone is really good for. It’s an SNL spoof of an iPhone commercial that never aired. The spoof never aired. Not the commercial. The commercial aired until the cows came home and set up their own facebook account.

Anyway: Here tis
