Creators of Review with Myles Barlow launch sketch comedy site

Creators of ABC comedy Review with Myles Barlow have today launched an online comedy site

The Jungle Boys are Trent O’Donnell, Phil Lloyd and executive producer Jason Burrows, who last week announced a new comedy series for the ABC, This Christmas.

The online platform is a place to experiment with new material that doesn’t fit with their current slate of TV work and free from network approval.

The first show on the platform will be The Elegant Gentleman’s guide to Knife Fighting.

O’Donnell, who has directed The Chaser’s War on Everything, Laid and the upcoming Woodley for ABC said: “The great thing about online is that we have a direct connection with our viewers and we can upload clips very fast and freely.”

“The Elegant Gentleman’s Guide to Knife Fighting is a different kind of sketch comedy. We’ve gone for naturalistic and subtle comedic performances compared to zany.”

The comedy team are also putting out a call for entries for viewers to submit their written ideas online and the winning entry will be produced by and screened on

Burrows said: “We feel that there is a lot of undiscovered and really funny talent out there who aren’t in the industry and we’re keen to provide an accessible outlet.”
