"Hey sh*t machines we hope you like our new web series 'Trendy' for Comedy Central Australia. It's available worldwide so all you pr*cks can watch it. We made 5 sketches and I think I may have depression.” - Aunty Donna
Aunty Donna exploded onto the Melbourne comedy scene in 2012 with their unique brand of live absurdist sketches, following on to create an award winning YouTube channel, garnering over 100,000 subscribers and 13 million views.
Comedy Central Australia, which launched with an Australian website in January, followed by the Fetch TV channel in April, will continue to commission new and exclusive content from home grown Aussie talent, with the next local commission being announced mid-May.
