Review with Myles Barlow to air on Thursday
[Press Release by ABC TV]
While other critics waste time with trivial matters such as film, food or art, one man dares to review all facets of life – our experiences, our emotions, our deepest, darkest desires – to rate them out of five stars.
Myles Barlow is prepared to go through it before you have to. Join Myles as he lives out the harrowing effects of being a murderer, the rush of pleasure as he pays for sex; the bleakness of living on the streets; and many more challenging moments from life’s rich tapestry.
Review with Myles Barlow, a low-budget, dark and degenerate comedy takes cultural criticism into a whole new dimension.
It is the existential infotainment show, the blackest of black comedy. Each week Myles Barlow is asked by his viewers to give guidance and advice on their particular dilemma, and nothing is forbidden in his quest to experience and evaluate whatever it is that his viewers want reviewed.
Featuring cameos by Anthony Hayes, Brendan Cowell and Josh Lawson, the show plays to the conventions of a television review program.
Myles struggles to be taken seriously by Brendan Cowell, the actor who plays him in a movie re-enactment of Myles’ heroic life. http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=HkM7MFYl2Ms
Review with Myles Barlow starts Thursday, October 16 at 9.30pm on ABC2 and www.abc.net.au/review
