Summary *Coarse Language*Confessional, illuminating, inappropriate, wrong! Welcome to Agony Uncles an unblinking six-part series, where some of Australia's funniest and wisest celebrity gents, including Tim Ross, John Elliott, Brett Tucker, Josh Lawson and Lawrence Mooney put their reputations on the line to tell you what it's really like to be single, cohabitate, marry, divorce and then be single again in the 21st century.Narrator Adam Zwar is the Uncles' trusted confidant. During the series the Uncles share with him the do's and don'ts of picking-up, falling in love, getting your heart broken and losing a house. For male viewers, the Agony Uncles will guide you through the cycle of love and beyond, and reassure you that you're not alone in thinking and acting as you do. Meanwhile the ladies get the chance to hear first-hand what men really think about love and all that goes along with it.The average Australian man has sex 127 times a year and thinks about sex every seven seconds. Last year over 103,000 Australian men got married and more than half of them got divorced. Agony Uncles delves deep into the male psyche and if you really listen to the Uncles, you just might learn a thing or two that could save you a lot of heartache and embarrassment. In the first episode, The Uncles take us through the rough and tumble of single life, from building up the courage to approach people we like, to trying to get them interested and then, ultimately, being rejected by them. Along the way, the Uncles advise on who to avoid, the importance of the wingman and exactly how long to wait before making that first phone call. PRODUCTION DETAILS:A High Wire Films Production.
