Local sketch comedy welcomes a new contender this week with the premiere of Australia, Get It Up Ya! on C31 Melbourne.
The production, partly by a grant from the Community Broadcasting Foundation, is also the end result of a successful crowdfunding campaign on Pozible campaign.
It is described as “A ground-breaking show in the comedy / travel / lifestyle/ current affairs / political / news / wildlife / bush-tucker genre with twice your maximum daily intake of great Aussie characters.”
The absurdist-style sketch has filmed around the country from Tasmania to Western Australia.
Narrated by Claire Hooper it is written and performed by Andy Matthews, Bec Petraitis, Matt Stewart and Alasdair Tremblay-Birchall.
Produced by Emma Sharp and Carly Milroy, the team have writing credits on Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell, Dirty Laundry Live, The Chaser’s Media Circus, The Checkout and The Project. It is artfully shot and edited by Evan Munro-Smith.
The six-part series will also be viewable at YouTube’s Stupid Old Channel.
9pm Mondays from October 26th on C31 Melbourne.
