The Chaser's Australia
"The Chaser's Australia is a comprehensive guide to the culture, history, politics, religion, fashion, media and the few remaining footy heroes not currently facing criminal charges, that have made Australia one of the Top 196 countries in the world today. Featuring fewer facts than an Andrew Bolt column, and more offensive claims than a George Pell's testimony, this definitive volume is the perfect companion volume to a proper book about Australia. The Chaser's Australia is a special bumper issue of The Chaser Quarterly. It is written by Chaser writers Mark Humphries (The Roast, The Feed) and Evan Williams (The Roast, The Feed, The New Yorker) with contributions from Chris Taylor and Charles Firth (The Chaser), James Schloeffel (The Shovel) and Rohan Arneil (the intern). It is the perfect Fathers Day gift for dads who are fans of The Chaser and who are also able to read. And perfect for reading when the battery of your smartphone goes flat. The book is the most comprehensive guide to Australia ever compiled, and is divided into six hilarious sections- Politics, History, The Nation, Sport & Religion, Culture & Media and People. "Our religion section covers all the major denominations- AFL, NRL, Soccer, Cricket, even lawn bowls," said Editor-In-Chief, Charles Firth."
"The Chaser is an Australian satirical comedy team. They are known for their television programmes on ABC TV, including The Election Chaser, CNNNN, The Chaser's War on Everything and The Chaser's Media Circus. They are famous for several high profile stunts over the years, including printing the personal phone number of then Prime Minister John Howard on the front cover of their newspaper, and dressing up as Osama bin Laden outside US President George W. Bush's hotel during the 2007 APEC Summit in Sydney. The team started as a satirical newspaper, a publication known to challenge conventions of taste. The Chaser's motto is oStriving for Mediocrity in a World of Excellenceo."
