Netflix: Meet the Aunty Donna cast - Mark Samual Bonanno and Zachary Ruane!

Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun is a brand new Netflix release in 2020, so let’s meet the show’s cast.

Mark Samual Bonanno, Zachary Ruane and Broden Kelly make up the ‘faces’ of comedy group Aunty Donna. Sam Lingham, Max Miller and Tom Armstrong are also members of the team.

Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun series 1 is comprised of six episodes. The show is made up of hilarious comedy sketches which often feature celebrity cameos. It’s safe to say the series is pretty unique as the opening scene of series 1 begins with a song “Everything’s A Drum“.

Mark has over 10,000 followers on Instagram. And by the looks of things, his IG account as almost as absurd as it gets as its made up of the same image (of him and his dad crouched next to a car) with different edits. The first upload was made in September 2019, so Mark’s essentially been uploading the same photo for over a year now. See the most recent version on his IG account.

Speaking to The Guardian in 2020, Mark said: “Some of us are a lot more politically minded in the group than others, but we just prefer to live in the absurd,” says Bonanno. “It’s the way our brains work.
