Why Victoria is the Posh Spice of Australia: Comedian Ross Noble mocks the state for its COVID-19 outbreak with a hilarious comparison

Ross Noble delivered a savage sledge against the state of Victoria on Tuesday during an appearance on Channel 10’s The Project.

The comedian, 43, hilariously compared the surge in COVID-19 cases in Victoria – which far exceeds spikes in other states and territories – to the dilemma facing British pop group the Spice Girls.

‘I don’t know if you’re across this, but currently the country’s going through what scientists call “the Spice Girls paradigm”,’ Ross began.

‘Everyone’s trying really hard, but Victoria’s ruining it!’ he joked.

The stand-up comic was referencing former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, not joining Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown on their highly-anticipated reunion tour last year.

Ross, who appeared on the program via video link from his home on the Mornington Peninsular, admitted he was frustrated by the recent outbreak in Victoria, where infection rates had previously been low.

‘We nearly got rid of it! It’s like when I’m on the phone to my mum and she says “Oh, I’ll let you go.” I go “OK”, and she says “Oh, did I tell you…” Argh!’ he said.

‘I know that’s me being cruel about my relatives, but maybe if people were a bit more rude to their families, there wouldn’t be as many family gatherings and we would get the numbers down! Come on, be rude to your mum!’

The funnyman concluded with one final jab at people he had seen who weren’t practising social distancing.

‘There are so many old people ignoring the rules down at my local hardware store, they might as well conga straight to the funeral home,’ he said.

Viewers flocked to Twitter to praise Ross’ joke comparing the state of Victoria to reluctant Spice Girl Victoria Beckham.

‘That Spice Girls joke was absolute gold,’ one tweeted, while another added: ‘Whoever wrote this deserves an Oscar.’

Victoria has seen a massive surge of coronavirus, with 73 new cases of the virus confirmed on Wednesday.

The figure, up from the 64 reported on Tuesday, means the state has recorded 212 cases in the past three days.

About 300,000 Melbourne residents from 10 postcodes have been ordered back into lockdown from Thursday as Victoria battles a second wave of the deadly disease.
