Randling is a game show about words that asks Australia’s funniest and smartest people to risk their sanity and dignity for the cause of family entertainment.
The game that decides who will take on The Fitzroy Fireballs in the Grand Final. It’s the Ducks of War versus the Argopelters, Felicity Ward and Heath Franklin throwing everything at Jennifer Byrne and Chris Taylor for a sniff of cup-winning glory. It’s high stakes, high anxiety and occasional high farce. Look out for: a discussion of new show Bogan Masterchef, the meanest Hieroglyphics game in the whole series, checkout rapper Price Cube and a quite extraordinary tactical gambit from the Ducks during War of the Words.
White-water rafting for the brain, Randling is a show where smart people can be funny and funny people can be smart, where actual knowledge may help you, but just as likely won’t. It’s a cheeky, surprising show that allows Mr Denton to live up to his hosting motto: “I’m Andrew and I’m not here to help”.
Mostly, Randling is a show where brilliant performers can come to play. And that’s play for fun as well as play to win. It’s a half hour filled with insight and insults, brilliance and bullshit. We guarantee every episode of will leave you at least 1% smarter and 100% happier.
