Thank God You're Here (Australia)

Show Summary

Each episode involves four celebrities walking through a door into an unknown and interesting situation, greeted by the line "Thank God you're here." Each must then improvise his or her way through the scene with the support of an ensemble cast. In between each scene, clips are shown of "practice" sessions filmed before the show, where they do things like try to sell items they know nothing about, go through an interview, or commentate an event. After all have had a go, there is an "All-In Challenge" where they are all put in the same situation together. After that, a winner is announced and given a trophy and flowers.

  • Australia has opened the blue door into worldwide stardom with this superb show.

    9.5
    Thank God You're Here is a hit Australian TV show that went on to become a worldwide succuss. It's a simple concept of having a talented performer walk through a door live in front of an audience into an elaborate set that has a brilliant ensemble cast create a situation and throw challenging questions at the performer. The scene could be hilarious, unfunny or just painful to watch depending on the performer's approach but watching them react to this world they no nothing about always guarantees quality television. Perhaps the only bad part of Thank God You're Here is the fact that it's pretty easy to get bored of the show and if it were on any more than once a week the concept would get boring but thankfully it's only on once a week so our interest is firmly contained.



    Populer recurring guests are; radio star Hamish Blake, actor Josh Lawson, comedians Shaun Micallef and Akmal Saleh as well as actor Angus Sampson. All of them deliver consistent performances although the squadrons of new faces are threatening the appearences of the old favorites. Thank God You're Here is justa brilliant reality/comedy show and whether it's done in Australia, Britain, America, Russia, Greece or wherever; the idea will never die.moreless

    getting the ebst of the best in the oz comedy world and seeing them quickly react to a situation where they have nio idea whats going on... oh gawd, give me the cahnce, man, it looks like so much fun. its certiantly fun to watch. i personally love when they go with the flow, the more subtle humour the better, fifi box, awesome, hamish and andy, bring them back more often, they're all great most of the time. and the comedians who are tehre everyweek in the situations, they deserve more credit having to keep to their scenario yet go with teh flow, i can't believe tehy keep straight faces, brilliant, absolutely fabulous!moreless

    Living here in Australia, settling down in front of the television each night is a somewhat tedious task, knowing you have to chose to watch either a repeat of CSI or another damned reality show! To turn on the TV one Wednesday night I was shocked to see that a new show had appeared - all the cast had Australian accents and the show was actually funny! It's basically an hours worth of improv acting - 4 guest stars (who have also dabbed in comedy) have around 4 minutes to turn sheer terror into comedy. They walk through a blue door, and are greeted by an ensemble cast member (usually unknown) and greeted by the tag line "Thank God You're Here". There are all different scenarios which the actors are greeted with - medieval times, cruise ships, Cleopatra, circus etc. Its just an awesome show to sit back and really watch the actors struggle or have a great time. And the actors are actually funny which is a real change from those sometimes boring American sitcoms. Some of the regular cast members are Angus Sampson, Peter Rosethorn, Akmal Saleh, Shaun Macalif and Frank Woodley. Ten out of ten, an awesome show! Bring on Season Two!moreless
  • American TV taxed it and started their own version of it - it's a sign that this show is definitely a "Trendsetter"

    "Thank God You're Here..." - always the opening line for each act.



    It is fun to see what world each comedian is going to be pulled in and to see if they can survive the bizarre situations they are placed in with grace and humour.



    I love to see the faces of each comedian as they open the door and see the strangeness that is placed upon them!



    The show definitely showcases the best of Australia's stand up comedians, including Fifi Box, Hamish Blake and many more that I can't remember at the moment!



    It's definitely a classic and I would always remember:



    "To love, cherish and e-Bay!"



    I can't wait for the next season!moreless
  • This kind of show separates the so-so comedians from the really brilliant ones.

    To be a good comedian you have to be abole to think fast, Thank God Your Here puts people in extrodinary situations where the comedian is supposed to act his or her way out of it.



    Its like not matter how many obstacles come up during the scene they have to try and find a way to get past them.



    What I really love about this show is that you find out which comedians are chumps and which are champs. There is no script so anything could happen.



    Hard to have a favourite person on the show, usually the regulars make me laugh the most, like Angus Sampson, Josh Lawson and Frank Woodley.



    Its great to see something fresh and original come out from Australia. We are used to terrible skit shows and boring predictable jokes.



    Thank God Your Here is a pleasant change!moreless
