Storyline

With no sense of on-camera technique, the Kate's will shuffle through a roster of unsafe demonstrations, surly guests, underprepared experts and the over-lit decomposition of the duo's already rocky relationship. Like any televisual format that The Kates put their rough, manly hands to, things on Get Krack!n' will go downhill fast. Frankly, whatever the hour, an audience deserves better.

Very funny
5 October 2017 | by net-pirateSee all my reviews

With regards to Matt Tighe, I don't work for the show and am not even Australian, but I find the absurdist humor of this show to be quite entertaining. This parody of an Aussie morning show that's on at an absurdly early hour because it is being broadcast to the US, is funny BECAUSE the shows hosts clearly don't want to be there and know that no one is watching. They bring all their off screen personal baggage to work with them and try hashing it out while dealing with guest of whom they could care less. Thanks to the internet for allowing me to find this show and enjoy it from outside of Australia.
