Quintessentially Australian

I’m sure I’m not the only member of the Australian contingent who’s watching Rampaging Roy Slaven and H.G. Nelson live from Salt Lake City on the Seven Network. Roy and H.G.’s late night show, The Dream, garnered unprecendented ratings during the Sydney Olympics and now they’re back for the Winter Olympics with The Ice Dream. If you’re in the US and you’re lucky, you may find that a local affiliate station has picked up the rights. If you enjoy humor based on fart jokes and taking the piss together with derisive commentary on the athletes’ performances, The Ice Dream offers a terrifying luge ride into the depths of the Australian psyche.
