"The best Australian sketch comedy series since The Wedge. The wedge was great though, but we just reckon we'll be better. No disrespect to Chris Lilley or whoever was on the wedge. We didn't watch the wedge. Fancy Boys has grown out of both the theatre show which played (and won the Golden Gibbo in 2014) at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and the Fresh Blood Initiative on ABC Iview. This is an all Melbourne show"
