Chris Lilley Dropped A Trailer For His New Netflix Special And It Looks Absolutely Fantastic

I honestly can’t even write about Chris Lilley without laughing. Every single one of his characters are fucking hilarious: Ja’mie, Jonah, Gram, Mr. G, Jen Okazaki- all of them.

Here’s who he came up with for his new special, “Lunatics.”

From The Wrap:

Joyce, an eccentric elderly ex-porn star and hoarder who is now a recluse who obsessively collects things while facing an impending eviction.

Sign me up. Naturally, people on twitter are upset about it (purposely not including the tweets). His characters have always been racially and sexually charged. It’s nothing new. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it. It’s that simple.

It’s going to be shot as a mock-umentary like Summer Heights High, which will make it that much better.

The documentary examines the lives of six extraordinary individuals and explores the idea that people are not what they seem at first. Through documentary-style interviews, self-recorded footage and fly-on-the-wall footage, the six intriguing subjects are observed over a period of months.

Their stories unfold with hilarious results, per Netflix’s logline. As eccentric and odd as they all are, they are scarily recognizable types and they teach us that it’s okay to just be you.

“Lunatics” premieres on April 19.

I don’t know if he’ll be able to top Mr. G, but I’ll watch regardless. Can’t wait for April 19th.  #Lilley4Lyfe
