Fame & Comedy on Frontseat, 11.00pm this Sunday 5th December
The Tragedy of TV Comedy: Jeremy Hansen discusses the long search for a top-rate NZ television comedy with Australian laugh legend Rob Sitch (Frontline, The Castle, The Dish), Jemaine Clement, Te Radar, Paul Horan, NZ On Air's Jo Tyndall and more. And Frontseat host Oliver Driver debates what's funny and how to get it on screen with TVNZ's Tony Holden and Scott Blanks from the Classic Comedy Bar.
Baby Remember My Name: With the impending birth of her first child, Frontseat reporter and former Aaria singer Amomai Pihama seeks out schools that encourage the performing arts, from the private Corelli School to Selwyn College in Auckland and Hagley High School in Christchurch.
Ballet Bites: The ever-popular choreographer and costume-maker Paul Jenden and co-star Louis Solino are preparing their next season of dance comedy at the Court 2 Theatre in Christchurch. It's a mad-cap journey through the history of dance from ballet to ballroom to, ah, the New Zealand contemporary dance scene.
Plus: Watch to find out how to win 'Phaic Tan - Sunstroke on a Shoestring', the new travel satire from Rob Sitch's Jetlag Travel, and 'Downstage Upfront' - a history of Downstage Theatre's first 40 years by John Smythe.
