The Greatest
4 September 2019 | by jacobmoon-comSee all my reviews

I am a big fan of mockumentaries, starting with Spinal Tap. Hard to beat this one for cringe-worthy moments and hilarious quotables. Chris Lilley is a straight up genius, and effortlessly pulls off 3 different characters on this funny and addictive show. It's so packed with moments that you'll want to watch it over and over just to catch it all. It left me with so many questions about Lilley, and it's been tricky to get any answers about the man behind the madness, on the internet at least. If you dig the Office or Chris Guest, this is for you. You're welcome!
