Problems: episode guide

Not a crisis in sight - but plenty of 'suburban issues' to worry about!


This brand new and exclusive sketch-comedy comes from Down Under and stars multi-talented comedian Sam Simmons, or, as we prefer to call him, the master of suburban absurdity. Sam – a man of impressive facial appendage – plays a host of hilariously strange characters that are more Elm St than Ramsey St.

Reference points? Think Flight Of The Concords, The Mighty Boosh and Arrested Development – it’s one of Australia’s strangest and funniest comedies of recent years.
