  • Russel Coight returning to Ten in 2017! Time for another All Aussie Adventure!



    The resurrection of a hapless travel character, two new Aussie dramas, and a raft of returning reality shows: these are the building blocks of Channel 10’s offerings to viewers in 2017.

    Among the new offerings is Ten’s punt on laughs and nostalgia, with the return of comedian Glenn Robbins’ alter-ego Russell Coight after a 15-year absence. Russell Coight’s All Aussie Adventures was last seen on Ten in 2002, as an hilarious parody on the adventure travel genre.

    Channelling the likes of the Leyland Brothers, Steve Irwin and Harry Butler, but with the bush skills of none of them, Coight would bumble his way through the outback in a mockumentary travel show long on sight gags, self-delusion, self-injury and failed examples of his bushcraft. He’d end each show with the catchcry “So what are we waiting for, let’s get cracking on another All Aussie Adventure”, but his mangled one-liners, scant details, fudged facts and talent for stating the blindingly obvious were what gained him cult status.

    Some visitors to Australia didn’t get the joke — and actually thought travel’s antihero was real.
    Russell Coight’s All Aussie Adventuresleads a modest bag of New Australian content unveiled by Ten for the next year, with Ten CEO Paul Anderson saying their network would concentrate on further increasing its prime time audience by locking in its 7.30pm reality franchises for the year.

                  In a modern world where comedy involves saying the word cunt repeatedly or making crude jokes about ethnicity or women, we should appreciate there's still people who can do clean, harmless Aussie comedy, and do it bloody well. It's also a locally produced show when the networks are flooded with US sitcoms and dramas.

                    This bloke is comedy gold.
                    A little "oh dad" rolled with some slapstick butit just works.

                    I'll be tuning in for sure.

                    Beats the hell out of most of the regular shows..

                      Since the show last aired the 4WD adventure DVD market has blown up with Pat Callinans 4x4 Adventures, 4WD Action, Roothy's Low Range and All 4 Adventure hugely popular. Glenn Robbins has a lot of material to satire.

                        yah,sorry,for a moment there i forgot about all the american shite !

                        i still think its low grade humour tho,but thats a personal choice [i will watch a few episodes and keep an open mind]

                        he was at his at his best in sylvania waters, and there's been a huge spin off of aussie comedy since that show

                          I think you may mean Kath & Kim ?

                          Glenn Robbins is a comic genious...from his early days in the Comedy Company (Uncle Arthur et al) to Russell Coight and other great iconic characters.

                            +1 I'll admit some of the stuff can be a bit droll and predictable but it's good simple old fashioned humour
