Pizza

Show Summary

Pizza is a hilarious series about a pizza shop and its wild employees. Pizza has grown famous because of their hilarious portrayal of Ethnic life. Pizza is based on the hilarious lives of five Ethnic people and one Australian pot-head. Pauly, the hilarious obsessed rev head who claimed he was a once professional boxer and wrestler, who works at the Fat Pizza shop and getting paid three dollars an hour is constantly told off by his boss and gets into fights with people, does burnouts in his turbo charged car and loves pick up the ladies. Sleek, the amusing Lebanese rapper who claims he rapped with Eminem, Snoop Dogg and 2pac, gets paid at the Fat Pizza shop three dollars and hour and also gets told off by his boss. Sleek's life goes by picking up chicks, dealing and using drugs, getting into trouble with the police constantly with his gang and rapping in his car. BoBo, the hilariously feared boss of the Fat Pizza shop who threatens to dock three dollars an hour if something goes wrong in his shop. BoBo, the forty something year old man who lives with his mum gets his chainsaw out when a food critic gives his shop and bad review. Rocky, the humorous sex crazed maniac who lives his life by cruising with the chicks, dealing and using drugs, selling stolen things on the black market and on the streets, gets into trouble with the law with his gang and robs banks and shops. Habib, the hilarious cousin/best friend of the crazy Rocky. Habib gets into trouble with the law and deals drugs with Rocky and loves to pick up the chicks. Davo, the Australian pot-head whose life is based on smoking weed using ecstacy and gets stoned most days. Davo is the token "Australian bogan" for the show, usually getting around in a pair of thongs and is notoriously a meat pie eater. He drives a thrashed out mini. Pizza is a very hilarious and witty show that has captured alot of fans in Australia. Pizza also has a stage show which sold alot of tickets. Pizza is funny show to watch and love and is enjoyed by alot of Australians.moreless

    • It's HARD to be Australian. I mean, all we've got is **** rugby & cricket. The only other thing we've got is phantom limb. (Know where I can buy any E's???)moreless

      It's HARD to be Australian. I mean, all we've got is **** rugby & cricket. The only other thing we've got is phantom limb. That's the part that hurts so much because it's where we should have a culture. (At least we've got American friends.) The only thing Australians have got is Aboriginals (the ones we didn't kill or gaol or drive to suicide) and...PIZZA! This is a show about the REAL Australian condition, about all the immigrants we wish had been stillborn. OK, I don't expect oinkers will get any of Pizza's humour but, for the rest of us who've been humiliated, insulted and oppressed by what passes for 'justice' in Aus, Pizza is a first class poke-in-the-eye! Good on ya, Paulie! (Know where I can buy any E's???)moreless
    • One of the best shows Australia has to offer.

      9.6
      Pizza revolves around a group of hilarious ethnic people working at a pizza shop. The main character is Pauly, one of the most funniest characters ever on TV (IMO) He loves fast cars and chicks. He calls everyone 'stooges' and likes to get into fights with other people for stupid reasons (eg: standing too close to his car)



      Other funny characters include Bobo, the shop owner, Davo, a pot-addicted bogan, and Habib and his obese girlfriend Toula. Every so often there is a special series that last for a dozen or so episodes, such as Pauly and his friends making a documentary or trying to break a world record. Pizza is a fantastic show and I recommend it to Australians who like comedies.moreless
    • Always good for a laugh! - Fully Sick!

      9.2
      In the very first episode Pauly (Paul Fenech) said "Being a pizza man is a very dangerous job" - How right he was.



      Since Pizza has started Pauly and his co-workers over the years have had some remarkable experiences.



      The best ones involved Pauly and "Sleek the Elite" I was dissapointed when Sleek got killed off, but his replacements were pretty funny. Also there has been much more screentime for Habib, Rocky and Toula which has to be a good thing.



      Bobo is probably my favourite character though, he is the psycho in charge who likes to kill things, whether they be pesky animals or pesky food critics who gave Fat Pizza a bad review!



      A great show!moreless
    • A good Australian show to watch.

      9.5
      I like this show a lot. The characters are either so stupid, violent, girl-loving or maybe even goofy. My favourite character would be Pauly. He seems to be very sensible compared to the others. Then there's Habib, you likes fat chicks like Toula, the doughnut lovin' freak. Bobo is the extremely-violent manager and chef of Fat Pizza. He still lives with 'Mama'. The new characters (or workers) are Kev the Kiwi, who I think has a drinking problem. DjBj thinks he's the world's greatest rapper (but extremely goofy). Chong Fat is voted the world's worst driver. Then there's Junior, the apprentice chef. He's just like Bobo, violent. Claudia McPherson, hot to guys but probably 'too blonde'.moreless
