The Chaser Report podcast launches live format from mid-June


The Chaser Report podcast will adopt a live format from June 14th, 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.

As before, the podcast will be 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.

“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,” says Firth.

“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 utilise the Acast+ subscription tool to launch a new PREMIUM episode of its podcast, that comes out each Friday. The first season will be called DRUNK Q&A, and will only be available to the most discerning (ie paying) listeners. You can become a Chaser Report Plus member here.

“Basically we’re going to become the Netflix of Australian comedy podcasts done by ageing satirists,” says Knight. “It’s bound to be wildly popular.”
