Austen Tayshus - Australia Day Special

Austen Tayshus is the stage name for controversial Aussie comic, Sandy Gutman, best known for a comedy single he released in 1983, 'Australiana'. He has since branched out into caustic stage humour and this live taping shows him at his incendiary best. SBS was extremely excited when developing the project but then got so frightened of some of the segments that they aired it late in the evening with significant caution! Certainly the 'Merchant of Menace' is not for the delicately inclined.
