The Naked Vicar Show - The Comedy Company - Netflix

The Comedy Company was an Australian comedy television series first aired from 16 February 1988 until about 11 November 1990 on Network Ten, Sunday night and was created and directed by Ian McFadyen, and co directed and produced by Jo Lane. The show largely consisted of sketch comedy in short segments, much in the tradition of earlier Sketch comedy shows, The Mavis Bramston Show, The Naked Vicar Show, Australia You're Standing In It, and The D-Generation. The majority of the filming took place in Melbourne. The show and characters had a significant effect on Australian pop culture, and had a cult following particularly on Australian youth. The word “bogan” was popularised by The Comedy Company character Kylie Mole, portrayed by Mary-Anne Fahey. This program should not be confused with a short-lived American sketch-comedy/variety series of the same name that ran 10 years earlier.
