Naughty Friday funny – Max Gillies

The Gillies Report was biting Aussie satire delivered by Max and the team. Max did the makeup and excellent impersonations which must have taken a lot of effort. This clip starts with the recently departed John Clarke and a lot of Aussie comics pop up as pretend audience members. Towards the end we see Max as Ronnie Raygun and Gorbechev. I always loved his Reagan impression. Also included in this clip is Patrick Cook. A cartoonist of some note. Famous for upsetting the architect Harry Seidler who promptly sued for defamation and lost. Then appealed and lost. And managed the get the cartoon he objected to, extraordinary coverage.

I have included the cartoon below. Seidler was a Modern style architect. Patrick was not a fan.
