Angry Boys back with new boy
COMEDIAN Chris Lilley will unveil another new character in tonight’s second episode of Angry Boys.
African American rapper S.mouse, who became an overnight sensation with his child-friendly single Slap My Elbow, makes his debut tonight.
The series follows the upper-middle-class rapper as he releases his new, controversial song Poo on You and is put under house arrest.
Lilley filmed the S.mouse scenes on location in Los Angeles in what was a significantly larger production than his previous two series, Summer Heights High and We Can Be Heroes.
S.mouse joins twin brothers Nathan and Daniel Sims and their grandmother Gran (pictured below), whom Lilley played in last week’s first episode.
Nearly 1.4m viewers tuned into last week’s highly anticipated premiere, making it the ABC’s highest rating show of the year. The 12-part series, which is a BBC and HBO co-production, also topped the Australian trends list on Twitter and made it into the Top 10 worldwide trends.
The series received mostly positive feedback from fans and critics, with only a few rumblings about the frequent foul language, Gran’s politically incorrect behaviour and a lack of ‘laugh out loud’ moments.
Lilley’s other new characters, washed up former pro-surfer Blake Oakfield and strict ‘tiger mum’ Jen Okazaki, will feature in future episodes.
