The Chaser is now better-known than ever, with the success of their current Friday night ABC TV series The Chaser's War on Everything.
The team responsible for The Election Chaser (2001), CNNNN (2002) and CNNNN Live (2003) have together lost a host of Australian and international TV comedy awards. However, their credibility-building run of losses ended in 2004 when CNNNN tied with Kath & Kim to win the Logie for Most Outstanding TV Comedy. In 2005 they won the Logie for Most Outstanding TV Comedy with the hugely popular, The Chaser Decides
The Chaser was founded in 1999 as a fortnightly satirical newspaper produced out of a spare bedroom by a group of four university friends. Since those humble beginnings, the Chaser team has lost its humility and has produced Classic comedy in all media, including print, online, radio, television and Christmas crackers.
