Extreme Vetting with The Chaser (AUS)

You can't trust anyone nowadays. The level of sedition, anti-authority behaviour and advertiser-unfriendly thought-crime has reached record levels -- especially among Australia's "elites". Luckily, The Chaser is here to sort the subversives from the patriots. Each week, The Chaser puts a comedian, writer or politician through the ringer, interrogating them on behalf of the Australian government. The stakes are high. If they fail, The Chaser has been granted the power by Peter Dutton to revoke their citizenship immediately and banish them to Nauru, or worse, New Zealand. Along the way, we hear stories from the lives of the those they're interrogating: from childhood through to the present. No stone is left unturned when you've been vetted by The Chaser.

Extreme Vetting with The Chaser (AUS)

Peter Greste

Peter Greste in an Australian journalist who was detained in Egypt for 400 days just for doing his job as an Al Jazeera correspondent. His book 'The First Casualty' tells his story in the broader context of increased attacks on press freedom around the world. So naturally, Charles and Dom were eager to put him through another painful interrogation.

Sami Shah was briefly Pakistan's Jon Stewart, but then his satirical TV show got shut down. He's now based in Melbourne, and has toured comedy shows all over Australia and the UK. His radio series have appeared on the ABC and BBC, and his book The Islamic Republic of Australia is either a witty insight into modern Islam for the non-believer, or a threat to our very way of life. Only Charles and Dom can decide.

Sam Dastyari is a Labor Senator for NSW, which would be reason enough for suspicion - but he was also born in Iran to a Muslim family, which brings him right to the top of Border Force's list. His book 'One Halal Of A Story' is a confession, but Charles and Dom demand to know more, including how he managed to obtain money from the Chinese and that ill-fated phone call from Bill Shorten.

Charles and Dom interrogate James Colley, comedian and writer for The Weekly (ABC), who has been using an alias, Peter Chudd, to spread patriotic screeds about why white people are not privileged enough. Are Colley's views tongue-in-cheek? Or is his racist, sexist, homophobic alter-ego is, in fact, the true expression of what it means to be Australian?
