Teaser trailer for Chris Lilley’s “Angry Boys”
Chris Lilley is a comedic genius. If you have ever seen Summer Heights High, you no doubt agree with me. Sadly, most people in America have not had the proper exposure to the Australian's humor. He's the writer/creator/actor of his shows, the two most popular being We Can Be Heroes and Summer Heights High, which aired on HBO in 2008. He not only creates and writes the shows, he plays every lead characters in his comedies and plays them perfectly.
His new show, Angry Boys, will be no different: "On Angry Boys, Lilley himself plays a pair of co-dependent brothers, a former surfing great, an untalented rapper, a prison guard grandma, and an overprotective Asian mother." HBO has posted the first teaser for the show, check it out after the break.
HBO hasn't announced a premiere date yet for Angry Boys, but speculation has been that it will be on air this summer. Personally, I can't wait. I am a huge Lilley fan, and Summer Heights High is one of my favorite shows, and I highly recommend you check it out if you haven't seen it yet.
