We Interrupt This Broadcast is here!

Once upun a time, a new sketch comedy was born

Do not adjust your set, We Interrupt This Broadcast, the biggest new comedy in decades launches 7.30pm Tuesday, 28 February on Channel 7 and 7plus.

From MAFS to MKRThe Masked Singer to MasterChefSquid Game to SAS Australia and The Block to The Bachelor; nothingis off limits with a team of more than 25 of Australia’s top comedy writers ensuring We Interrupt This Broadcast is accessible for everyone.  

A fast, furious and long-overdue sketch comedy series, We Interrupt This Broadcast reboots and revitalises a long-standing and near-forgotten Australian tradition: taking the piss out of everything, including ourselves! 

We Interrupt This Broadcast showcases eight of Australia’s most seasoned live performers and versatile comedy talent: Christie Whelan Browne, Bridie Connell, Michelle Brasier, Adele Vuko, Duncan Fellows, Greg Larsen, Ben Russell and Bjorn Stewart, with celebrated screen actors and established comedy performers supporting the ensemble cast throughout the series.

Reflecting on the Australian sense of humour, Adele said: “We have a broad range of humour that shows our diversity. We’ve traditionally been known as laconic, larrikin underdogs – but even though we are that – we have a lot more heart and soul to show.” 

Michelle agreed: “We don’t have just one sense of humour in Australia, but we don’t like things that are mean spirited.” Bridie acknowledged our humour is: “Laid back, dry, delivered with a wink and a good spirit.” Christie concurred Aussies are “self-deprecating” while Bjorn declared it “Cooked. Proper cooked mate”.

We Interrupt This Broadcast is a HELIUM original production for the Seven Network.
