Billy Birmingham is an Australian humourist and sometime sports journalist, most noted for his parodies of NineNetwork {{cricket}} commentary in recordings under ''The Twelfth Man'' name.

%% !!He has made the following albums of parodying sports commentary:

* AffablyEvil: Max Walker is affable, but willing commit acts of violence and obscenity in order to get his job back. The real Walker enjoys this version of himself.
* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: He loves making {{PunnyName}}s using Australian English phases.
* BiasSteamroller: Bill Lawry unashamedly cheers on Victorians. Not that much of an exaggeration from his real commentary.
* InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike: Those Punny Names sound quite plausable (as some are takes on real names)
* InsistentTerminology: "That's not Canary Yellow, that's Australian Gold my friend and don't you fucking forget it!"
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: At the start of ''Wired World of Sports II'', Max Walker gets a call from Richie Benaud; however, he doesn't believe it's him because Richie has every reason to hate him - and does.
-->'''Richie Benaud''': Max, it's Richie Benaud.
-->'''Max Walker''': Yeah, right, who is it?
-->'''Richie Benaud''': I told you, it's Richie Benaud.
-->'''Max Walker''': Nah, fair dinkum, who is it?
-->'''Richie Benaud''': Max, shut the fuck up! It's me, you dopey bastard!
-->'''Max Walker''': Richie! It is you!
