1639. ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ Australia Commemorates Its ‘Legendary’ Comedians.

  ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ In Blog 1637 I suggested that Royal Mail might like to reissue its 2015 British comedians set of 10 stamps as a means of cheering everyone up at this difficult time. Now it seems that Australia Post is going to do just that having issued its Australian Legends set on 15 April 2020 on the subject of Australian Comedians who, apparently, are legendary in Australia.
  The 4 stamps were issued in gummed format as well as self-adhesive format from individual booklets of 10 with a separate booklet for each comedian. The issue was designed by Sonia Young and lithographed by EGO (gummed) and Realease S/A (self-adhesive) and perforated 14 x 14.5.
  Well we all need a good laugh right now don’t we?

    1. Looks like Australia has a Jimmy Crankie as well!

  2. I agree with the two-star rating. These look like pictures my high school students would design for a project due in one week.
