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. 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.

User Reviews

One of Australias best Comedys
8 July 2007 | by dobbin-4See all my reviews

Thank God Your Here is an awesome Australian comedy that is original, clever and bloody hilarious. The plot of the show is 4 famous Australian Comedians step in to a room in to a situation they know nothing about. The shows originialty is enormous and is a laugh a minute show (literally). The show is good probably because of the people on the show which is kinda nice as they have people like Frank Woodley, Glenn Archer and many more. Overall I think that this show deserves a lot of praise and I will rate it 96%. So I recommend watch it on TV buy it if you will because you will not find many better Australian Comedys.
