Airdate: Super Fun Night

2013-10-03_1144Rebel Wilson is a performer who tends to divide many viewers, but there’s no denying her success as an Aussie girl who has made good in the US.

Now her new US comedy Super Fun Night will begin on Nine, from 8pm Tuesday, October 15. That will see her follow Big Brother and precede Big School, which seems like a pretty good fit.

The series also features Aussie actress Kate Jenkinson (House Husbands, Offspring), guest appearances from Matt Lucas,  and Jacki Weaver.

Produced by Conan O’Brien, the first episode airs today in the US.

Super Fun Night, the hilarious new comedy starring Aussie Rebel Wilson, follows three nerdy friends on their “funcomfortable” quest to have fun every Friday night, even if it kills them.

Kimmie (Wilson), Helen-Alice (Liza Lapira) and Marika (Lauren Ash) have been best friends for 13 years, united by a love of warrior princesses, rock parties (with actual rocks) and fantasising about one day having a boyfriend.

Unlike most girls their age, they spend every Friday night “always together, always inside!” But after Kimmie is promoted at her law firm and meets handsome colleague Richard (Kevin Bishop) she persuades the others to face their fears and try something new, only to realise the three friends haven’t been out in a very, very long time.

Now, embracing the streets of the city that never sleeps, the ladies prepare to brave New York and have a super fun night, every Friday.

Super Fun Night comes from the comedic mind of Rebel Wilson herself, along with Conan O’Brien’s Conaco Productions and director/executive producer John Riggi (30 Rock, Will & Grace).

Tuesday, October 15 at 8.00pm on Channel Nine

  1. It was terrible. Few funny moments, but her accent is atrocious and distracts you the whole time. Don’t know why she couldn’t have kept her Aussie accent when they have a British character on the show anyway.
    It was absolutely mauled by the critics too. Good luck Nine.
