WHAT is the real reason we fall for shonky news?
A panel of Australia’s leading comedians are ready to tell you the answer to that when the ABC’s “Question Everything” returns on October 18.
During the nine new episodes the panel will give you the clues to unpack the news and how to stay informed not alarmed.
Pulling apart the news media, Question Everything refuses to put it back together with all the fun that has made this one of the ABC’s highest-rating shows.
Host Wil Anderson (pictured) said he thought there was no way he would have enough material for a third season, but I am still being bombarded with misinformation.
“In fact, we might need more episodes to get through it all,” he said.
As well as providing the audience with the tools to understand the news, Question Everything is a development ground for the next generation of Australian comedians.
Through workshops, internship programs, and in-depth writing tutorials with some of Australia’s most experienced writers and performers, young comedians are given their first step into the comedy industry or a leg-up on their rise to greatness.
Host Jan Fran adds, “It’s a thrill to see some of Australia’s best and brightest new comedians take on some of Australia’s most laughable news reporting.
Question Everything, season 3, returns Wednesday at 8.30pm, October 18 on ABC TV and ABC iview.
