Orange Is The New Brown
Thursday, seven, 8.30pm
It’s about time a fresh sketch comedy landed on our screens. Aussie sketch shows were arguably at their peak around the early ’90s, with Full Frontal, The Comedy Company and Fast Forward having audiences in stitches. Now, comedian Nazeem Hussain is hoping to revive the genre on mainstream TV with this starstudded, often hilarious and sometimes subversive series. Showcasing up-andcoming talent, viewers’ eyes might widen at the impressive guest stars, including Claudia Karvan, Tim Minchin, Sigrid Thornton, Kat Stewart, Gary Sweet, Gyton Grantley and singer Kamahl.
