Storyline

Swift and Shift Couriers is an Australian comedy series created by the writers of Fat Pizza. Based on a courier business in the western suburbs of Sydney, the business is run and staffed by a rag tag collection of layabouts, misfits and socially challenged individuals. Essentially everything that can go wrong does go wrong in typically outrageous fashion. With a mix of cultures and dodgy work ethics this business is an absolute disaster and the show makes for an eclectic viewing experience with a distinct take on Australian humour.

Nice Slice of Madness
4 April 2009 | by gurfatehphilSee all my reviews

Quite entertaining and funny in it's own twisted and politically incorrect way. A nice slice of the madness inherent in modern life and Sydney in particular. It's a 9-part series from Paul Fenech. He's the mad genius behind 'Pizza'. As you'll gather from the title, it's all about the staff of a courier company. Part of the grand comedy tradition of transport and taxi stuff ups. It's a comedy of errors, or should that be terrors? Having had to deal with the transport industry first hand when work in the education industry, this inspired silliness is spot on and close to home. There's going to be a second series in late 2009. Watch it and it'll cheer ya up a bit.
