Comedic writer and director Paul Fenech has warned that the Australian public is being marginalised by the influences of the media.
â€œPeople in the media are so polished that the real people are being marginalised.â€ Fenech told Encore. â€œYou donâ€™t see real people on TV, (even) reality contestants are hand-picked.â€
His new show Housos, a slapstick comedy about residents living in a housing commission began airing on SBS this week.
â€œThe show is more about bogans than housing commissions. It follows in the comedic tradition of Paul Hogan. I never thought it would be as topical as it has been.â€
