Airdate: The Moth Effect

6 part sketch comedy from Nick Boshier & Jazz Twemlow goes above the news cycle with a top-line cast.

6-part sketch comedy The Moth Effect will screen weekly on Amazon Prime Video from late July.

The series from Nick Boshier and Jazz Twemlow promises to go broader, bigger and funnier than ever before with a sketch show that goes above the news cycle. This show condenses “current meaty issues, zeitgeisty vibes, and cultural catastrophes into quality, high production-value universal comedy.”
Sketches vow no area is off limits, poking fun at social movements, breakfast and reality TV, the Aussie way of life, and more.

Produced by Bunya Entertainment and Amazon Studios, it features over 30 sketches, music videos and interstitials starring Bryan Brown, Vincent D’Onofrio, David Wenham, Jack Thompson, Miranda Otto, Ben Lawson, Peter O’Brien, Kate Box, Zoe Terakes, Miranda Tapsell and Jake Ryan alongside Aussie and Kiwi talent including Mark Humphries, Nazeem Hussain, Zoe Coombs Marr, Jonny Brugh, Lucinda Price, Dave Woodhead, Louis Hanson, Steen Raskopoulos, Tim Franklin, Sam Cotton, Christiaan van Vuuren, Sarah Bishop, Sam Campbell, Megan Wilding and Brooke Boney.

The Moth Effect is directed by Craig Anderson (Double the Fist, Review with Myles Barlow, Laid, Black Comedy) and Gracie Otto (Under the Volcano, The Other Guy, Bump). Produced by Lauren Elliott (KGB, Small Town Hackers, DAFUQ?) and Jordana Johnson (Nice Shorts), and Executive Produced by Sophia Zachariou (Nice Shorts, The Checkout, Gruen, The Chaser, Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell and Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey). The series was written by Nick Boshier and Jazz Twemlow with a team of contributing writers including Sarah Bishop, Bridie Connell, Mark Humphries, Nazeem Hussain, Natesha Somasundaram, David Woodhead and Meg O’Connell and Ramsay David Nuthall.

Friday 30 July on Amazon Prime.
