The Chaser’s War on Everything has been cutting edge TV in Australia since the mid 2000s. It’s stopped for now though they tried to bring it back during the Royal Wedding (got squashed by the BBC).
It’s irreverant, it pisses off politicians, celebrities, people in high places. But it’s comedy, it’s clever, it’s out there and it’s taking the piss.
We used to be funnier here. We used to do this sort of stuff. But we seem to have lost our ability to do it. Or pretty much.
Why? We’ve got to sort this…
