From Saturday November 6th, Saturdays become Comedy Night on SBS ONE.
It will air animation series The Ricky Gervais Show (which has already aired on Pay TV) plus doco series Comedy School and a stand-up special featuring Akmal performing in Brissy.
The Ricky Gervais Show
From the creators of The Office and Extras comes this new comedy series. Based on the audio podcasts of Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington, the program sets the trio’s musings on numerous inane topics to irresistible animation.
Find out what it really takes to be a stand-up comedian in this four-part observational documentary series that follows ten students as they attempt to learn the tricks of the trade under the guidance of veteran Australian comedian Rob McHugh. Rob’s students embark on a life-changing quest. For all ten, it’s a nerve wracking, cringe-making and hilarious journey from curious novice to debutant comedian.
Akmal – Live & Uncensored
Akmal is one of Australia’s favourite comedians. Filmed in front of a live audience in Brisbane, Akmal tackles topics such as growing up in Australia, the Government, being an Arab in the modern world, the joy of terrorism, radio, film and television, plus the history of the world through Akmal’s eyes and his unique take on the human condition.
