From the 14th of June, The Chaser Report podcast will be adopting a live format, recorded in front of an audience at the Harold Park Hotel, Glebe in Sydney’s inner west.
The show, dubbed The Chaser Report – Live! has been commissioned for an initial run of four episodes, hosted by Charles Firth and Dom Knight, and will feature appearances from a range of the other old original Chaser team, such as Craig Reucassel, Chris Taylor, Chas Licciardello and Andrew Hansen, as well as younger, better-looking, funnier comedians from around Australia, including the Chaser interns.
Firth says, “This new live format means we never have to leave the pub again. Recording it at night will allow us to return to a life of breakfast beers and long lunches. We figure that now Labor is in government, everyone will be day-drunk for the next three years.”
At the same time, The Chaser Report will launch a new premium episode of its podcast, that comes out each Friday.
The first season will be called DRUNK Q&A, it will only be available via paid subscription.
Dom Knight says, “Basically we’re going to become the Netflix of Australian comedy podcasts done by ageing satirists. It’s bound to be wildly popular.”
