Who are the Chaser?

The Chaser is a satirical media empire which rivals Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation in all fields except power, influence, popularity and profitability.

Founded in 1999 as an independent satirical newspaper produced out of a spare bedroom by editors Charles Firth, Craig Reucassel, Julian Morrow, Dominic Knight (and later joined by the far more talented Andrew Hansen, Chas Licciardello and Chris Taylor) the Chaser team has since gone on to produce Classic™ comedy in just about every corner of Australian media, including print, online, radio, television and Christmas crackers.

Best known for their various ABC TV series’, including CNNNN and The Chaser’s War on Everything, together the team have produced over 15 TV and radio shows, losing a host of comedy awards and lawsuits in the process.

The Chaser are currently involved in a number of active projects, including the production of The Chaser Quarterly, a new series of The Checkout on ABC TV, running the GiantDwarf theatre in Sydney, and answering 500 fan emails a week asking what the extra N in CNNNN was for.
