Australia gets a new sketch show

Nazeem Hussain heads Orange Is The New Brown

Antipodean comics Nazeem Hussain, Urzila Carlson, Becky Lucas, Matt Okine  and Broden Kelly, from comedy trio Aunty Donna are to star in a new Australian sketch series.

Six half-hour episodes of Orange Is The New Brown, which is described as being about ‘race, politics and pop culture’ have been ordered for the Seven channel.

Tim Minchin is to make a guest appearance in the show, in a sketch arguing with singer Kamahl.

‘This was a really fun show to make,’ said Hussain. ‘But to be honest I’m just using this show as a stepping stone to Home and Away. Any role will do. I’d even settle for the Uber Eats driver at the diner.’

He is also on the writing team alongside  Joel Slack-Smith,  Sophie Braham, Richard Thorp, Penny Greenhalgh,  Heidi Regan – the winner of the BBC New Comedy Award last year.

Seven is yet to announce an airdate.
