Watch Ja'mie: Private School Girl


Chris Lilley's mockumentary style Ja'mie: Private School Girl is set in the fictional Australian private school, Hillford Girls Grammar School. It is a scathingly funny examination of not only adolescence but the ubiquitous overindulgence found in many a posh private school. Ja'mie is school captain--in her words "I'm basically the boss of the whole school"--while trying to be the kind, overachiever any daddy's girl would strive to be the facade begins to crack when she is not treated with the reverence she is sure she deserves.

Lilley plays many of the characters which only adds to the humor. To watch Ja'mie, with her masculine jawline and prominent adams apple, prance and preen her way through her day is true comedy genius. The absolute deadpan cluelessness with which Lilley portrays the overindulged ingrate that is Ja'mie will leave you gasping for breath. Ja'mie: Private School Girl may have been a long time in the making, but it was definitely worth the wait.
