Series: Angry Boys

Australian comedian Chris Lilley's third show in his familiar Mockumentary style. Chris Lilley plays multiple characters, including:

  • Nathan and Daniel, a pair of twins living on a farm in rural Australia, return from We Can Be Heroes. Daniel describes Nathan as "mostly deaf, and a little bit retarded".
  • Gran, a prison officer at a boys juvenile penitentiary and Nate and Daniel's grandma. A hardass and a racist, but she cares about her charges.
  • S.Mouse, an American rapper most famous for his Dance Sensation song, "Slap My Elbow". A Soulja Boy Expy.
  • Blake Oakfield, a former surf champion, and a member of the Mucca Mad Boys, expies of the infamous Maroubra Bra Boys.
  • Jen Okazaki, mother of a teenage skate star. In pursuit of increasing his notoriety in Tokyo, she wants to market him as a gay skater, despite his actual orientation. Described by Lilley as "the meanest, most awful character I've ever done."

Angry Boys is a co-production between The ABC and HBO, the same way HBO worked with the BBC on Extras. The series features Daniel organising a farewell party for his brother Nathan and inviting all their favourite celebrities. Like his previous shows, Angry Boys mixes Crosses the Line Twice, Refuge in Audacity comedy and surprisingly insightful satire of modern culture.

Not to be confused with Angry Birds.


This show provides examples of:

  • Theme Tune Cameo:
    • Appears in the penultimate episode as "Squashed Nigga", S.Mouse's first good song.
    • Slow, magical build up as Nathan sees the Legend's arrive in the final episode.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist:
    • Another Chris Lilley staple.
    • Debatable. Gran, Daniel, Nathan and Blake are clearly presented as sympathetic as the series goes on, and even S.mouse mellows. The only clearly evil character is Jen.
  • Volleying Insults: S.Mouse does this with his girlfriend.
