Product Description

Double set of mockumentary comedy series created and performed by Australian comedian Chris Lilley. 'Summer Heights High' (2007) parodies high-school life through the three main characters (all played by Lilley): camp 'Director of Performing Arts' Mr G, who dreams of attaining artistic heights; private school exchange student Ja'mie King, who's forced to slum it in the backwaters; and hard-as-nails Tongan student Jonah Takalua, who's trying to avoid being expelled. Contains all eight episodes from Series 1. 'We Can Be Heroes' (2005) is a satirical look at the search for the 'Australian of the Year', with the five contenders all played by Lilley. Contains all six episodes.

Synopsis

Summer Heights High, written by and starring Chris Lilley, is the award winning Australian mockumentary series starring three of the funniest protagonists - all played by Lilley - to hit our screens in years.


The effeminate, yet megalomaniacal, Greg Gregson--aka 'Mr G'--is the self-appointed 'Director of Performing Arts', passionate about his 'innovative' teaching methods and determined to write his own 'Arena Spectacular'. Summer Heights High is the third school in eighteen months for Jonah Takalulah, a teenager with Attention Deficit Disorder and problems with aggression. His best hope is to avoid being expelled, but he says he's 'not dumb' he's just 'choosing not to be smart at the minute.' Private school exchange student Ja'mie King is struggling to cope away from her privileged background at 'like, the boganist school ever.'
Also incudes the mocumentary series We Can Be Heroes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chris Lilley's a Comedy Hero! 9 Feb 2009
By maisie
Hilariously cringeworthy characters populate this brilliantly observed pair of mockumentaries from Australia's Chris Lilley, with all the leads played by Lilley himself, regardless of race, creed, disability or gender. Sharp cult comedy that leaves you wanting more and the song from Mr G - the Musical, 'Naughty Girl' going round and round in your head for months afterwards.
