About

THE IRREVERENT SKETCH COMEDY THAT GOES WHERE NO OTHER SERIES CAN GO!

Black Comedy is a fast paced, funny, entertaining, silly and sometimes serious look at Australia and Australian culture through the comedic prism of our first people. Acerbic, witty and altogether unapologetic, the show explores what it means to be black in contemporary Australia – and in doing so carves up sacred cows, dismantles stereotypes, and turns our modern culture inside out.

Comprising observational and physical sketches, historical pieces and parodies of TV, film and commercials, each episode of Black Comedy is held together by a longer sketch that gives the episode a sense of cohesion and narrative drive. Irreverent, provocative and just a little bit wrong, this award-winning sketch series ‘goes blackly where no other Blackfella has gone before’.

Written by and starring some of the funniest and most talented Indigenous performers in the country, including Nakkiah Lui, Adam Briggs, David Woodhead, Dave Human, Gabriel Willie, Nayuka Gorrie, Aaron Fa’Aoso, Elizabeth Wymarra, Rarriwuy Hick and Wayne Blair. Black Comedy Series 3 also features an impressive guest line-up, including Mia Wasikowska, Matt Day, Leah Purcell, footballer Adam Goodes, Jack Charles, Christine Anu, Elaine Crombie and many more.
