Creating a comedy ‘hot pot’, OPEN SLATHER combines the talents of comedy legends who have made us laugh for years (Glenn Robbins, Magda Szubanski, Shane Jacobson, Marg Downey, Gina Riley, Stephen Curry, Michael Veitch and Jane Turner), with a new wave of comedy performers (Ben Gerrard, Ben Lomas, Dave Eastgate, Demi Lardner, Emily Taheny, George H. Xanthis, Hannah Bath, Holly Austin, Ilai Swindles, Jay K Cagatay, Laura Hughes and Miles O’Neil) in a one-hour prime time Sunday night show.
Drawing on the proven track records of the highly experienced producer team of Rick McKenna (Kath & Kim) and Laura Waters (Summer Heights High), this is a show chock full of razor sharp commentary on contemporary society.
Each episode parodies popular culture, politics, sport, music, media – all the things that capture the imagination of the public and get people talking. From the Real Housewives of Melbourne to Downton Abbey, Gina Rinehart, Hillary Clinton and even Superman – no one is safe!
It’s the landmark comedy show that Australia has been waiting for. Subversive, energetic and risqué, everything is up for grabs – it’s literally OPEN SLATHER.
