So much that he might make a doco about it.

Louis Theroux may be the busiest man in Australia, from his finding dopplegangers to exploring Perth and now he's indicated an Australian based documentary could be on the horizon.

Theroux is in Australia for his national tour Louis Theroux Live on Stage! and has been well and truly immersing himself in Australian life.

Known for his documentaries that explore the human condition, he's yet to do one based in Australia but he indicated it could happen in the future on the ABC's 7.30.

"I'd like to get into the outback. I'm curious about the relationship between the races here and especially conditions the Indigenous community is living in," he said.

This isn't the first time he's dropped hints at an Aussie-doco, he previously told the ABC that he's always been interested in the landscape of Australia, finding the idea of the outback "hugely appealing".

He also drew comparisons between the rise of Donald Trump and Britain's decision to leave the European Union in Monday night's interview.

"There's a phenomenon called the Shy Tory, the right-leaning voter who is a bit bashful about expressing candidly his or her opinions. So it didn't massively surprise me," he told the ABC.

Theroux thinks a similar type of phenomenon is responsible for the rise of Donald Trump and his ideologies.

He's also been having some fun over here -- while promoting his film 'My Scientology Movie' he launched a competition to find his doppleganger.

And that's not the only fun he's been having with lookalikes....

Theroux kicked off the tour in Perth, posting his first photo as he went 'undercover' in the West Australian capital.

While he's in Australia it's also been announced that his Scientology film may not be released in Ireland due to blasphemy laws.

Any 'publication or utterance of blasphemous matter' is forbidden in Ireland, against any religion, so that includes the subject of his film Scientology.
