HBO's newest comedy, Summer Heights High, melds the mockumentary style of The Office with the quirky, "Who writes this stuff?" appeal of Flight of the Conchords. It's not a one-man show, but it's close: Australian Chris Lilley, who portrays two high-school students and a teacher, proves that multiple-personality disorder can be pretty damn funny. Take a look.
