  • Summary

  • This series contains mature themes and strong language, and listener discretion is advised.

    Campbell Parkes may be an idiot but he still has his own radio show, broadcast every day at midnight to a dwindling audience. His long-suffering producer Michelle longs to pursue real journalism but instead must listen to Campbell's on-air rants about expensive cinema tickets and reusable coffee cups every night.

    When an opportunity to grab the station's hallowed breakfast slot develops, it's time to raise their game and make the biggest splash possible - no matter how outrageous. It's a win-win situation: supporters tune in to cheer you on, and detractors tune in just to hate you. People have never been so desperate to be offended.

    In the chase for ratings, there's no turning back - they can only keep running into one disaster after another....

    Riot Act is a hilariously subversive satire about the price of success, populism and the media that keeps it going. Mark Humphries, one of Australia's most celebrated comic talents, heads a stellar ensemble cast including Liv Hewson (Netflix's Let It Snow and Santa Clarita Diet), Anjali Rao, Tony Martin, Gretel Killeen, Tom Ballard, Marc Fennell, Wendy Harmer, Rosie Waterland, Heather Mitchell, Jordan Raskopoulos, Hugh Riminton, Monica Attard, Dan Ilic, Hamish Macdonald, Ben Fordham and Sandra Sully.

deep!

this podcast meant something to me 🤠 Well acted and thought out. Not many producers could make a funny guy mean something important.
