Cinema Australia’s Matthew Eeles caught up with Shane Jacobson and Manu Feildel to grill them about their new Australian comedy, The BBQ.
The BBQ stars Jacobson as Darren ‘Dazza’ Cook, a loveable suburban everyman with a long-established belief that his family is related to Captain James Cook.
Dazza harbours a passion for barbequing, but when he accidentally gives his neighbours food poisoning at his popular regular Saturday BBQ, Dazza’s reputation and dignity are on the line. To make amends he seeks tutelage from the tyrannical Scottish chef known simply as The Butcher (Magda Szubanski).
Together they enter an international barbecue competition, pitting Dazza’s homespun recipes against the world’s best BBQ chefs.
The BBQ stars Shane Jacobson, Magda Szubanski, Manu Feildel, Julia Zemiro and Nicholas Hammond and is in cinemas from February 22.
