Chas Licciardello is a comedian, writer and presenter. He was a member of the satirical comedy group The Chaser. The impact that The Chaser have on Australian TV, culture and politics is not to be underestimated. They were fearless and there hasn’t been anyone like them since.
Chas is the creator and co-Executive Producer of ABC’s new entertainment series, WTFAQ. Formerly a member of The Chaser, Chas has appeared regularly on Australian TV over the past two decades on shows including CNNNN, The Chaser’s War On Everything and The Hamster Wheel. Over the last decade Chas has also pursued his love of American politics, and amazingly made it entertaining for others as the creator and co-host of the ABC’s Planet America.
WTFAQ has just premiered on ABC TV and ABC iview, and Planet America airs Fridays at 8pm on ABC NEWS channel.
WTFAQ’s crack team of presenters - Chas Licciardello, Alex Lee, Lawrence Leung, Lou Wall, Cameron James and Kirsten Drysdale - hit the sweet spot where comedy meets inquisition to answer the questions that have sparked curiosity in the minds of our audience for far too long.
We chat about getting arrested for TV, pranks gone wrong, being in the industry for 20+ years, collaboration, passion and love of his craft, his respect for Rove, fear, being patronised, his new show WTFAQ, gratitude, mentors and being a better person.
The video footage of this entire chat is
