I really expected Ten to commission this, but here we are.


There is a show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival on April 20, featuring comedians such as Anne Edmonds, David Correos, Fern Brady and John Kearns.

Could this be filmed for TV, or is there a separate new program in the works?


Is this a new commission as an Australian version? Could ABC have rescued the show given Three is all but abandoning any local programming in NZ?

I’m surprised to see ABC get it too - I watched some of the NZ version and it seems like the sort of thing 10 could play 8:30 Monday or Tuesday (when Cheep Seats or HYBPA are off) or something to air with Taskmaster Aus as some “Fun & Games” oriented line up.

Still I’ll probably watch, and yay for no ads.


If you’re curious, here’s the Kiwi version :

The show was reported to have received funding from NZ On Air for its second season.
