Question Everything on ABC – Wil Anderson, Jan Fran, and a collection of Australia’s best and brightest comedians dissect the news, giving you the clues to unpack the news, miss all misinformation, and stay informed not alarmed.
Expect to see familiar faces like Alex Lee, Mel Buttle, Nath Valvo and Geraldine Hickey returning to our screens along with some exciting, emerging comedians such as Bec Melrose.
The panel will look into news stories of the week but we’ll also dig into some media hacks and tropes like:
- Why your feed is always full of one grim detail,
- Why the private lives of the rich and famous are always making headlines,
- Why the internet is always divided,
- Why everyone seems to be an “expert” with an opinion,
- And why OUTRAGE often comes down to one tweet or TIKTOK,
As well as providing the audience with the tools to understand the news, Question Everything is a development ground for the next generation of Australian comedians. Through workshops, internship programs, and in-depth writing tutorials with some of Australia’s most experienced writers and performers, young comedians are given their first step into the comedy industry or a leg-up on their rise to greatness.
Production credit: Question Everything is an original format created by Wil Anderson. Produced by CJZ. Executive Producers: Wil Anderson, Polly Connolly and Nick Murray.
