Reviews

"It is a joyous sharing of stories, a celebration of urban Indigenous identity and takes a satirical look at the media and popular culture."

deBASE Productions, 2012

"An affable and winning actor, Sheppard’s picaresque offering is as original as it is Aboriginal, taking a light-hearted but surprisingly deep and personal look at Murri culture within a sketch framework, drawing on his own childhood in Mareeba among the Muluridgi mob."

Time Off Magazine, 2010

"As original as it is Aboriginal."
