The Chaser's War on Everything is a satirical television comedy series broadcast on ABC TV in Australia. The series is produced by the Australian satire group The Chaser consisting of Chris Taylor, Julian Morrow, Craig Reucassel, Andrew Hansen and Chas Licciardello. Fellow Chaser members Dominic Knight and Charles Firth are not part of the regular on-screen cast. Knight is however a writer for the show, and Firth did roving reports for the show from the United States, until he left the group to start his own satirical newspaper in mid-2007.

The entire team of The Chaser on The Chaser's War on Everything on 14 July 2006.

The Chaser were originally formed by Dominic Knight, Charles Firth, Craig Reucassel and Julian Morrow, and in 1999 they ran a fortnightly newspaper entitled The Chaser. Since then they were joined by Chas Licciardello, Andrew Hansen and Chris Taylor, who helped them with the satirical publication. Through the help of Andrew Denton, an ABC personality, the Chaser team produced various shows for the ABC: most notably CNNNN. In 2005, they began filming a pilot for a new television series for the ABC, with the working title The Age of Terror Variety Hour.[1] The Chaser team signed with the ABC, 27 half hour episodes for 2006, which would be based on news reviews, studio monologues and confrontations with politicians, celebrities and business leaders.[2] The show was to be presented by Morrow, Hansen, Reucassel, Taylor and Licciardello.[1] Image File history File links TheChaser-FullTeam. ...

The ABC rejected the name The Age of Terror Variety Hour and other names including Thank Allah It's Friday. While the names The Chaser is Right and Hey Hey, it's the Chaser were accepted, the Chaser filmed a pilot of the new show under the Hey Hey, it's The Chaser title in 2005,[3] but the Chaser team didn't like the name and therefore eventually selected The Chaser's War on Everything. The show was to be performed in front of a live audience, in a more relaxed format compared with CNNNN and other Chaser productions.[2]


Release and popularity

Broadcast

The first season of The Chaser's War on Everything premiered on ABC TV in Australia on 17 February 2006 at the time of 9.45 pm.[4] The series aired late on Friday evenings where it developed a cult following, getting between 591,000 and 821,000 viewers each episode.[5] In the middle of the year, the show broadcast two 'best of' shows in the mid year.[6][7] The show broadcasted it's last episode of the 2006 season on 8 September 2006. is the 48th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Due to its popularity, the ABC moved it to the timeslot of Wednesdays at 9 pm (AEST) for season two.[5] In the lead up to the second season, The Chaser team produced a live webcast of people counting down to the first episode of the season. New segments have also been developed and the opening sequence was reworked. The move to a prime time position ultimately resulted in an increase in the show's ratings, despite being in direct competition with high performing shows on commercial networks, with ratings close to 1.5 millions viewers each week.[8][9] The Chaser finished their 24th and final episode of the show for the 2007 season on November 14, 2007. They then produced The Chaser Decides for the remaining two episodes of the production, based on the federal election.[10] It is unclear whether they will return beyond 2007.

Due to the popularity of The Chaser rising, largely due to the controversy of the APEC motorcade stunt, many international countries currently broadcast the show. Countries which broadcast the show include Finland, Israel, New Zealand, Norway and South Korea. Twenty other countries are already in negotiations with ABC TV to air the series including Canada, Denmark, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Thailand and the United States. There is a possibility that re-edited versions of the show would be broadcast without reference to Australian politics which might be considered irrelevant or confusing to overseas audiences .[11] The ABC or Australian Broadcasting Corporation is the national, Australia. ...

Show content

Primary segments

The primary segments form the backbone of the show. These segments normally focus on key issues in a range of topics. They are normally presented by the cast members, live in front of the audience, and may be accompanied with pre-produced stunts and sketches relating to the topics.

  • Introduction – Each episode begins with Reucassel and Taylor opening the show. The pair discuss the major events of the past week, present their opinions, and show a pre-produced stunt or sketch. On some occasions, other cast members may join them. Technically, the introduction is not a specific segment, however it features prominently in every episode. From the beginning of season 2 onwards, the credits of names as displayed during the program have been replaced in various manners.
  • "What Have We Learnt from Current Affairs This Week?" – Presented by Hansen and Licciardello, the segment pokes fun at the sensationalism used in competing weeknight current affair programs Today Tonight and A Current Affair. All segments feature a lesson on their reporting techniques, such as how to spot 'dodgy' guys, how to identify the different types of experts, and the art of network cross-promotion. Both shows are regularly criticised for their tendency to come to fast and inaccurate conclusions. The tallyboard, featured in Season One, of the different types of stories presented, such as "Menaces To Society", has been all but abandoned in Season Two.

  • "Firth in the USA" – Firth, now living in the United States, performs a stunt or conducts an interview, with obvious references to USA culture. Stunt examples include attempting to enter Yale University's 'Skull and Bones' secret society and meeting Hillary Clinton to offer his services as her presidential intern; an obvious satire of the Lewinsky scandal.[19] This segment has been less prominent in the second season.
  • "In Other News ..." – A former segment, presented by Morrow and Reucassel, which focused on current news stories and events, and sometimes showed a pre-produced stunt related to the news item. This was the only segment to appear in every episode of Season One.
  • Conclusion – To end each episode the whole team gathers together, with one of the group members saying the closing joke. Similar to the Introduction, this is not a specific segment.

  • "The Fixers" – Seeming to replace "In Other News ...", Morrow and Reucassel examine problems in the community, and present their idea for a fix. This is usually accompanied by a pre-produced item.

Supporting segments

The supporting segments are usually pre-produced stunts and sketches, supplementing the primary segments of the show. They are generally much shorter in length.

  • "Surprise Spruiker" – Hansen plays a shop "spruiker" attempts to help various institutions having trouble selling a particular item or idea. Examples include Giorgio Armani suits, WorkChoices (outside their government offices), and Dell laptops, satirising the battery controversy. The stunt usually concludes when he is ordered by security guards to switch off his speakers.
  • "Scenes from the Life of the Crazy Warehouse Guy" – Hansen plays a stereotypical announcer from a warehouse television advertisement uses his unique speaking style in everyday situations, such as ordering McDonald's, asking for help in a public library or talking on a mobile phone in public transport. Hansen originally performed the character that would become the Crazy Warehouse Guy in parodies of frantic rug warehouse commercials.
  • "Pursuit Trivia" – Morrow tests the general knowledge of a politician or celebrity by asking a Trivial Pursuit question from a game card in his hand at an interview or press conference. Prominent in the first season though not in the second.
  • "Mr Ten Questions" – Hansen poses for a journalist at a press conference and, when prompted, proceeds to ask ten questions (which vary in degrees of relevance) without letting the interviewee speak until he has read out all ten. Questions can relate to the subject or be completely obscure. So far Anthony LaPaglia and Kerri-Anne Kennerley are the only people who have seriously attempted to answer all ten questions.
  • "A Message From Osama Bin Laden" – An existing video of the infamous terrorist Osama Bin Laden is subbed with incorrect and humorous subtitles, often declaring a Jihad on various people for arbitrary irritations. Videos of Saddam Hussein, Abu Bakar Bashir and Kevin Rudd (APEC Chinese speech) have also been used in a similar manner.
  • "Citizens' Infringement Officer" – Morrow acts as an officer who hands out fake fines on behalf of general citizens. Reasons for fines are often very unusual, such as fines to parking inspectors, people with "wanker" number plates, bad mobile phone ringtones and parents with inappropriate babies' names.

Occasional segments

These segments support the show, however do not feature prominently.

  • "What Have We Learnt From History?" – In this segment Hansen, Taylor and Reucassel test whether people today have learnt a lesson from events in the past; for example the invasion of the Trojan Horse and the German Invasion of Poland in World War II.
  • "Famous Face Off" – A former segment, presented by Hansen, in which two "masters" in a particular field competed to be the best in an endeavour such as tongue-twisting newsreading or "blocking" reforms in the Senate.
  • "The 2:30 Report" – A former segment, presented by Licciardello and Morrow, which reviewed the worst of late-night television, including late night game shows such as Quizmania, and Christian programming.

  • "The News According To Fox" – Licciardello and Hansen criticise the bias of the popular American Fox News Channel.
  • "What You Missed on Cable" – Presented by Licciardello and Morrow, this segment highlights the oddities on cable TV programs, and compare them to the bland programming on the ABC. On the DVD commentary, Licciardello points out that it is intended to replace the 2:30 Report from Season One.
  • "Anna Coren's Segue/Meaningless Gibberish of the Week" – Integrated into "What Have We Learnt from Current Affairs This Week?", this segment looks at either Coren's extremely complicated transitions between unrelated stories, or the strange and meaningless introductions she says on Today Tonight.
  • "Nut Job of the Week" – Licciardello and Taylor take a look at the "special people in our society"; people who have "alternative views". For example, The Secret's theory on how to acquire your deepest desires by the Law of Attraction was examined.

Recurring material

  • Stunts - A staple of the show, stunts feature regularly throughout the episodes and are a major part of many of the Primary and Secondary segments. Stunts are performed by one or more, or all, of the team and can vary from confronting celebrities or politicians to testing staff reactions in shops and department stores. The stunts performed on the show all have to be approved by the ABC Legal Department, to prevent breach of the law or the rules of a target company. There are a few stunts performed on the show that are shot in controlled conditions, with either hired actors or by setting up people, where it would be impossible for the show to get legal permission. This use of controlled stunts has been one of the reasons Today Tonight has criticised the show. The Chaser team refer to these controlled stunts as 'sketches'. In the 2007 dvd of the first half of the season, it is stated that the basic formula for the stunts is,"go in, get our footage and get kicked out".
  • Songs – Hansen performs songs with a humorous theme. Some include Prolix Songwriter (a songwriter who is prolix); Hill$ong (a parody of Hillsong) and Scottish Comedian (a parody of Billy Connolly). Although all the music and vocals are by Hansen, the lyrics are usually written by Taylor, and other members who often appear to be singing or playing are in fact just miming or pretending to play. However, the most controversial song performed was "The Eulogy Song", performed by Hansen, about the lives of various deceased personalities, including Steve Irwin, Princess Diana and Peter Brock.
  • Television Advertisements – Throughout the series the team create satirical television advertisements, which either advertise a false item or mock existing ads. Some notable ones include 'Sandy' toilet paper (toilet paper made out of sandpaper), 'Appearing In Government Ads - Australia Says No'; a parody of the government advertisement, 'Violence Against Women - Australia Says No'. Incidentally, the Crazy Warehouse Guy was introduced by an advertisement, before the "Scenes from the Life of the Crazy Warehouse Guy" segment was first made.
  • Vox Pop – One of the team members conduct vox pops with people on the street asking for their opinions. One vox pop included Craig asking tourists about the new Australian tourist campaign, 'So where the bloody hell are you?', which has the subject of much media attention of the use of the word "bloody". Instead, he asked opinions on 'new' campaigns, including; 'Don't be a prick, visit Australia' and 'Fuck, Australia's fucking great so why the fuck aren't you here motherfucker?'. In another segment, Morrow asked people if they thought iPods were anti-social, while listening to an iPod himself.

Controversies and well-known stunts

Julian Morrow's novelty cheque

On February 8, 2006, before the first episode of the show had screened, Morrow approached Australian Wheat Board executive Charles Stott with a fake novelty cheque, made out to Saddam Hussein, and asked Stott to sign it. Stott's lawyer said his client felt intimidated by the stunt, and the footage of the stunt was not shown in the first episode as scheduled due to "legal reasons". In the first episode to go to air, Morrow responded by raising the point that Charles Stott has done business with Saddam Hussein, a brutal dictator, yet he is intimidated by a large novelty cheque.

On the ninth episode of the show, Taylor announced that he planned to break-up with his partner of seven years, but he didn't want to ask her "the usual boring way", but do "something special, something she'll remember". The segment shows several of Taylor's attempts to "pop the question", including hanging a sign over a freeway, and "proposing" on a big screen at an outdoor festival. For the finale, Taylor introduces the interview of him on the morning television programme, Sunrise. In the interview, Taylor asks the host if he can send a quick message to his partner, he then proceeds to tell her to "get the fuck out of my life". This finale from the segment was leaked onto the internet and has been widely distributed by email. Many viewers believed the segment was actually real but Taylor admitted on national radio station Triple J that it was set up. It was actually filmed after Sunrise went to air, with Channel Seven editing on screen graphics for realism. The hosts of Sunrise admitted it was a set up. However, they did not know what Taylor was going to say because he only asked if he could do a bit for the show.[22] Image File history File linksMetadata Taylorsunrise. ...

Chas Licciardello's Bulldogs incident

On July 14, 2006, Licciardello was charged with offensive conduct after attempting to sell fake Canterbury Bulldogs merchandise outside an NRL game.[23] The merchandise included plastic knuckledusters and balaclavas in the Bulldogs' colours, and was supposed to satirise the anti-social and hooligan behaviour of some Bulldogs fans. Several Bulldogs fans took offense and as a result he was charged for offensive behaviour.[24] On the broadcast following his arrest, Licciardello appeared onstage in handcuffs and within an iron cage. On that same episode, he apologised for his actions, claiming to understand why the Bulldogs fans were offended: because Canterbury Bulldogs fans much prefer to use their fists. This statement was accompanied by footage of Bulldog's supporters assaulting opposing team supporters during a match. After appearing in court with Morrow, Licciardello pleaded not guilty and the matter was adjourned.[25] On January 23, 2007, Licciardello was found not guilty of the offensive behaviour charge.[26] He was interviewed after the case draped in an Australian flag, and said he would appeal "to the Supreme Court, to the High Court, to the UN, to the Jedi Council and the Snickometer."

Craig Reucassel's axe stunt

On 2 August 2006, Reucassel responded to a news story about a private school student who had hugged Prime Minister John Howard while holding a screwdriver during one of the PM's morning walks. To test the Prime Minister's security arrangements, he approached John Howard during a morning walk and asked for a hug while holding a large plastic battle axe. Reucassel did receive the hug, but a later approach while holding a running chainsaw was not so successful. There was much debate surrounding whether or not to turn on the chainsaw and whether they would be shot at for doing this.[28][29] Cut out from this segment was an unsuccessful attempt that took place between the axe and the chainsaw, in which Reucassel was holding a four-point-star mace.[30] is the 214th day of the year (215th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On 16 August 2006, Morrow purchased two airline tickets on the Virgin Blue airline under the names "Al Kyder" and "Terry Wrist", checked in using the automated check-in at Sydney Airport, and then did not show up for boarding, so that the names would be read out in a final boarding call over the public address system.

When TV cameras remained focused on Reucassel rather than Mr Debnam, he said, "Sorry, I'm not Peter Debnam, he's over there. Just because I'm wearing this doesn't mean I'm Peter Debnam".

On April 26, 2007, Hansen, posing as his character Mr. Ten Questions, turned up at an interview with screen legend Sophia Loren and asked a usual set of 10 questions, however, they seemed to have offended her.[33] Hansen was then taken from the building and Loren commented on Hansen as "terrible" and "silly". The incident made headlines that night,[34] and Today Tonight again saw an opportunity to create controversy over this stunt, saying that they "think they're being funny."

Imitation insecurity passes used by The Chaser to breach the APEC Australia 2007 restricted zone.

During the APEC Leaders Summit in Sydney, on 6 September 2007, Morrow and Licciardello along with nine other production crew members were arrested after they drove a fake Canadian motorcade down Macquarie Street and successfully breached the APEC restricted zone.[35] Police only realised that the motorcade was a hoax when Licciardello, dressed as Osama bin Laden, stepped out of the car replete with bonnet-mounted Canadian flag and complained in-character about not being invited.[36] This article is specifically about the 2007 APEC stunts involving The Chaser. ...

Licciardello, Morrow and the nine crew members were immediately detained by NSW Police, questioned and charged with entering a restricted area without special justification under the APEC Meeting (Police Powers) Act 2007.[37]. All were released on bail to appear in court on 4 October 2007[38]; and subsequently ABC lawyers requested for all matters to be adjourned until December 5, 2007.[39]If found guilty they each face a maximum penalty of 6 months imprisonment, or up to 2 years if they were in possession of a "prohibited item".[40] NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione stated that the Chaser stars risked being targeted by snipers during the prank.[41] Badge of the NSW Police The New South Wales Police (also NSW Police or NSWPOL) is the primary law enforcement agency in the State of New South Wales, Australia. ... is the 277th day of the year (278th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The stunt was planned and approved by ABC lawyers under the assumption that the motorcade would be stopped and discovered at the first security checkpoint.[42] However, they managed to pass through two police security checkpoints, using a fake convoy of hired limousines.[43] According to Licciardello, he "never intended to get that far" but played along with it to make their stunt better. The footage of the prank, which was seized by the police, was returned to the ABC and featured in their next episode the following week.


Despite condemnations by various public officials, the Sydney correspondent to the BBC reported that the Chaser team had become 'folk heroes' following the stunt.[44] Furthermore, 87% of some 28,451 respondents to a web poll conducted by the Sydney Morning Herald found the stunt funny.[45] Indeed, Alexander Downer, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, appeared amused when asked to comment.[43] For other uses, see BBC (disambiguation). ... ...

Tim Freedman parody

On 7 October 2007, Tim Freedman singer and songwriter for rock band The Whitlams posted a message on the band's website, citing a parody of him which had gone to air on 3 October.[48] The song, performed by Andrew Hansen, implied that Freedman was obsessed with the Sydney suburb of Newtown, and continually referred to the area in his songs. Freedman alluded that the lyrics had been written by Chris Taylor, and that the parody had been motivated by Taylor's break-up with a girl who had previously dated Freedman. This has in turn been denied by Taylor, having said the song had nothing to do with his relationship with her.[49] is the 280th day of the year (281st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

"The Eulogy Song"

On the October 17, 2007 episode, Andrew Hansen sang a song that was written by Chris Taylor which satirised the lives of several deceased celebrities, including Peter Brock, Princess Diana, Donald Bradman, Steve Irwin, Jeff Buckley and Kerry Packer, expressing the view that people with flaws during life are often disproportionately hailed as "top blokes" after death. The song became the target of significant media attention, with several radio and television personalities saying the song was in "bad taste", and both Prime Minister John Howard and opposition leader Kevin Rudd expressing negative views. A few days later, the team approached John Howard on his morning walk, dressed as rabbits, and sparked a reaction from the Prime Minister, with him saying: "You blokes are a lot funnier when you pick on someone who's alive".[50] is the 290th day of the year (291st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

A number of news programs reported that the ABC's switchboard was jammed with calls from "disgusted viewers" immediately following the show. It was later revealed that only six calls had been made that night about the shot, three of them in a positive light. Although a number of complaints were received the next day the ABC alleged that a large number were listeners of a Melbourne radio show, and that when asked many said they hadn't seen the show. In response some shows such as Today Tonight claimed many more complaints would follow.[51] Neil Mitchell. ...


In response to the attention, Chris Taylor supported the message, stating that it was a legitimate skit and that although the song mentioned recently deceased breast cancer victim Belinda Emmett, the rest of the cast pretending to cut off Hansen before he completed his verse was "making a joke about the inappropriateness of making a joke about Belinda Emmett."[52] He also revealed it was a "watered down" version of the song which was previously performed twice on stage in his musical 'Dead Caesar'.[53] Belinda Belle Jane Emmett (April 12, 1974 – November 11, 2006) was an Australian actress and singer. ...


During the following episode on October 24, 2007, an ad parody of the John Howard and Kevin Rudd YouTube advertisements aired in which Hansen started to play an additional verse to "The Eulogy Song" with reference to David Hookes before once again being cut off in the same style as the election advertisements (with the camera zooming out of a flat panel display with someone else pausing the video). is the 297th day of the year (298th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Seven Network Injunction

On the 14th of November 2007, The Chaser made an attempt to poke fun at Today Tonight and the way that they re-enact procedures and events which they base their stories on. As they had done several times before, they infiltrated the Seven Network's news headquarters at Martin Place and requested for the Today Tonight presenter Anna Coren, where they came dressed as pretend cameos for the re-enactment segments. However, within the headquarters, they were confronted by the staff off the building for trespassing and had their footage seized. Both Today Tonight and their rival A Current Affair broadcast reports of the stunt, the Today Tonight broadcast claiming that they had finally caught the Chaser red-handed. However A Current Affair did a relatively lighter report on the incident, seeming to take side with the Chaser. Channel Seven got an injunction to stop The Chaser showing the segment, however, The Chaser plans on challenging the injunction.[54][55] In place of their planned stunt, they shot a "hasty and dubious" reenactment of it. Channel 7 boss David Leckie exclaimed in an outburst at waiting photographers outside Channel 7's offices that The Chaser were "...nothing but a bunch of tossers, they're fucking wankers"[56], Julian Morrow responded "I interpret those comments as David making overtures to us.

Today Tonight has aired segments which show the Chaser's stunts were set-up, and criticising their role in breaking through APEC's security.[59][60] However, when Today Tonight asked if they could follow The Chaser team on one of their stunts, The Chaser agreed. The Chaser chose a stunt that would embarrass the Channel 7 television programme. They did so by having a "Meakin Booze Bus"; in reference to Channel 7 boss Peter Meakin, who was recently convicted of drink driving. In the shoot, The Chaser members kept bringing up the topic of Peter Meakin to reporter James Thomas.[61] It was revealed later that The Chaser did eventually answer enough of Thomas’ questions so that Today Tonight received what they wanted, but Today Tonight did not end up running that footage. They instead broadcast scenes where the members were seen as arrogant.[62] Peter Meakin is an Australian journalist and the head of news and current affairs at the Seven Network. ...
