Aunty Donna Join The Comedy Central Family
Hey there Australia! We like you, and you like us... we think. So it's with great joy to announce our first local commission! Melbourne based sketch comedy group Aunty Donna. Aunty Donna will be making an excellent web series for our Not For TV platform.
This will be the first of several original Australian projects that Comedy Central will develop as part of Not For TV. Not For TV is Comedy Central's platform for unique and fresh comedy and has birthed shows such as Broad City. We're looking for the next hot potato, and we think the hottest potatoes (among many hot potatoes) here in Australia land right now are Aunty Donna.
Aunty Donna have won awards for their live work, having performed at major comedy festivals throughout the world. Their fresh take and left of field approach to Aussie sketch comedy will bring the gold and melt your brain. Having been selected for the ABC's Fresh Blood initiative (which saw them create a half hour pilot.) they’ve also worked with YouTube and Screen Australia.
But now they've entered the Comedy Central family, so get excited please. We'll hold off on telling you exactly what their series will be about but in the meantime, absorb their audio visual brilliance (using your eye balls) on this tasty piece of sketch comedy:
