7. Don’t Burn Your Sausage NOT FOR THE KIDS
Ok I can’t resist throwing this one in. I am a fan of Chris Forrest the comedian. His kid did swimming lessons with mine for a while and he lives nearby. He also won MasterChef. He did a show all about the funny side of parenting too.
Now he teams up with MasterChef SA judge Pete Goffe-Wood for the ulitmate whisk-qué comedy-cooking show which connects food and sex.
