very small business, very big humour
4 January 2010 | by nedzterSee all my reviews

Amongst all the terrible reality and lackluster drama shows of Australian television came a little gem called 'Very Small Business'. This should come as no surprise as Australia knows how to do comedy,(some other countries may not get it sometimes), but this show is strong evidence.

Don Angel likes to think he has the gift of the gab, the only problem is he can't sell ice to Eskimos and his business has so many loose ends that the loose ends have loose ends. This makes for one entertaining character who makes you constantly cringe as he digs himself deeper and deeper into a hole every episode.

Ray Leonard on the other hand is the polar opposite of Don (his Boss) as they share an office space that is home to some very funny scenes. Cleverly written, superbly acted and well filmed there has only been one series of this show filmed. Even though i thoroughly enjoyed the six episodes i saw and would be happy to leave it there, i can't help but itch for more.
