The 10-part series, from the producers behind iconic television series Summer Heights High, Jaimie Private School and The Goddam Election with John Safran will provide a platform for experimental short form comedy, made by Australia’s most trending online creators from YouTube.
The Slot is an original Foxtel series focused on producing and promoting emerging and experimental short form comedy from a new wave of Australian online creators. These creative innovators aren’t just pushing comedic boundaries, they’re smashing them. For almost a decade, they’ve been living in the shadows, whilst casually dominating the Internet. The success is in the numbers. Between them they’ve amassed billions of views with their captivating, weird, hilarious and at times absurd comedy never before seen on TV.
From all around Australia, direct to your screens, we’ve hand picked some of the best and brightest creators to bring you brand new originals, as well as some of the viral classics which made them famous.
Our hosts, Christiaan Van Vuuren (Bondi Hipsters) and Adele Vuko (Skit Box), have been a part of this bizarre and exciting underworld for years – now they’re inviting us in.
Each episode will see Christiaan and Adele travel the country to catch up with some of Australia’s most successful comedy content makers, with every encounter fittingly
unorthodox and chaotic.
The Slot. Unpolished. Unhinged. Always Entertaining. Coming Soon to The Comedy Channel.
