After a successful crowdfunding and grant writing campaign, Laura Imbruglia’s DIY webseries “Amateur Hour” is back for Season 2!
To the uninitiated, Amateur Hour is a web based variety show bringing together a stellar cast of local Australian bands, artists, performers, and straight up weirdos; a unique arts & culture show created by the artists of Australia.
Season 2 promises a return of regular segments Laura Jean’s “Lazy Guide to Health” and Ben Salter’s craptastic “Cats!” segment, along with exhilarating music performances by Australia’s best emerging and established bands (the first cabs off the rank to include Sydney’s The Laurels and Mere Women). Fans of the show will be pleased to know its idiosyncratic comedy skits are also making a return, the first taste of which (the star-studded “Gender Reversed Guitar Shopping”) has just been released.
The sketch features You Am I’s Davey Lane in an excruciating guitar shopping experience all-too-familiar for female musicians.
Shopkeepers Adalita, Jen Cloher and Laura Imbruglia condescend, womansplain, generalise and sonically brutalise him. A true delight. In 5 days, the video has already become the web series most viewed and shared video, at 5500+ views and climbing.
Get your eyeballs around it (and yes guys, this IS what it’s like).
