Someone give Mr Joseph his own show.
Yes, they’re different TV shows created by Chris Lilley. Summer Heights High was first broadcast in Australia in 2007 and it’s a mockumentary focusing on 3 individuals at a high school who are all played by Chris- Ja’mie King, Jonah Takalua & Mr. G. Jonah from Tonga has been released this year and it’s a mockumentary featuring Chris only playing one character, Jonah Takalua and it continues Jonah’s story after Summer Heights High. I assume you’ve enjoyed at least one of Chris’ other shows so I would definitely recommend that you watch both of these shows too. Summer Heights High is out now on DVD and you can get really cheap deals online and although you might have missed watching Jonah from Tonga online over the weekend, it’s going to be aired every Wednesday from May 7th on ABC1 in Australia at 9pm, every Thursday from May 8th on BBC Three in the UK at 10pm and it’s coming soon to HBO. :)
