Watch Jonah From Tonga

Jonah from Tonga is an Australian mockumentary series written by and starring actor and comedian Chris Lilley. The series follows the adventures of the rambunctious 14 year old Jonah Takalua who was expelled from his big city school and sent by his father to live with his uncle.

Jonah Takalua's social problems both in and out of school stem primarily from his love of popular culture and emulating gangster rappers. Jonah forms gangs and is generally a disruptive class clown type of character who always seems to mean well, but never seems to do well. Jonah's primary gang in the series, the "Fobba-liscious boys," get into trouble for everything from bullying to skipping school.

The program also stars Tama Tauli'i as Jonah's talented singing brother, Isaia Noa as Jonah's father, Linda Horan as Jonah's Aunty Grace, Eigawe Hunt Jonah's sister, and Jane Reupena-Niko as Jonah's cousin Melody whom he periodically attempts to date.
