“What’s this then sl*t?”
Will cult duo The Tiddas be part of Black Comedy when it returns to ABC this year?
Only half of Townsville’s over the top gay blackfellas, is returning to the show this year.
Season three of the Indigenous comedy is currently filming with key cast Aaron Fa’Aoso, Nakkiah Lui to be joined by Wayne Blair, Rarriwuy Hick, David Woodhead, Gabriel Willie & Nayuka Gorri
But Steven Oliver, who plays one half of the Tiddas, is not returning whilst Season 2 regulars Adam Briggs & Elizabeth Wymarra will make a guest appearances.
The Tiddas have been one of the show’s breakout acts, with the competitive “What’s this then sl*t” becoming a comedy catchphrase. Unashamedly camp, it also attracted its share of detractors.
Season Three will film in and around Sydney over the next five weeks and will screen on ABC later in the year.
Fresh, original and just a little bit wrong, first launching in 2014, Black Comedy debuted to rave reviews and garnered a legion of fans and millions of views online. Featuring sketches that spawned catch-phrases mimicked all around the country, Black Comedy takes a cheeky look at Australian culture through the comedic prism of our nation’s first people, with no area off limits.
Nurturing the next generation of comedy writers, the new series showcases a talented line-up of Indigenous actors and comedians. The core team will feature new writer / performers including standup comedian David Woodhead, Gabriel Willie (Bush Tucker Bunjie) and social commentator / writer Nayuka Gorrie. Returning favourites include actor Aaron Fa’Aoso and writer / performer Nakkiah Lui, who will be joined by actors Wayne Blair and Rarriwuy Hick.
Guest appearances will include Adam Briggs, Leah Purcell, Jack Charles, Christine Anu, Elizabeth Wymarra and Elaine Crombie along with Matt Day, Lisa Hensley and plenty of surprises.
Written and directed entirely by Blackfellas, the six-part series combines a mix of observational and physical sketches, historical sketches and parodies of TV, film and commercials.
