This unprecedented offering of classic comedy adds to Foxtel’s current slate of incredible content available to watch On Demand, guaranteed to keep viewers entertained as they binge on old favourites or discover something new.
The following hit comedy series are all available to stream On Demand:
These pretzels are making me thirsty! One of the greatest comedies of all time, Seinfeld stars Jerry Seinfeld as a stand-up comedian whose life in New York City is made even more chaotic by his quirky group of friends who join him in wrestling with life’s most perplexing, yet often trivial questions. Co-stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards.
In this Emmy Award-winning series and worldwide smash-hit, Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as the Vice President of the United States Selina Meyer, who finds the job is nothing like she expected, but everything her incompetent staff warned her about. Throughout her tenure, she attempts to prevent various political uproars while juggling her public as well as private life.
Beloved comedic actress Fran Drescher stars in The Nanny as Fran Fine, a saleswoman who appears on the doorstep of wealthy widower Maxwell Sheffield’s New York home. Fran unexpectedly gets a job as the nanny for the Broadway producer’s three children and brings her no-nonsense honesty, sharp sense of humour and `Queens logic’ into the Sheffield household.
Parks and Recreation
From the Emmy Award-winning team behind The Office is this hilarious ensemble comedy that follows Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) as a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana, and her tireless efforts to make her quintessential American town just a little bit more fun. Co-stars include Rob Lowe, Aziz Ansari and Nick Offerman.
The multiple award-winning comedy is told through the voice of Tina Fey as variety show producer Liz Lemon. The series also features Alec Baldwin as top network executive Jack Donaghy and Tracy Morgan as Tracy Jordan, the unpredictable star of Lemon’s hit variety show. Lemon always has her hands full, juggling corporate interference from Donaghy while attempting to salvage her own personal life.
Starring Steve Carrell, the multi-award-winning US comedy series presents an hilarious documentary-style look at the humorous and sometimes poignant, foolishness that plagues the 9-to-5 world. Based on the BBC hit series of the same name, the show is a fly-on-the-wall “docu-reality” parody of modern American office life, delving in to the lives of the workers at a paper supply company in Pennsylvania.
Created by Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, and produced by Amy Poehler, Broad City is an odd-couple comedy about two best friends navigating their 20s in New York City. Abbi and Ilana are broke and flawed, and they don’t shy away from the sticky situations NYC throws at them — they dive right into the muck. No matter how bad it gets, these broads are always down with whatever hits them.
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Larry David stars as…Larry David, living a fictionalised version of himself, as he lives the good life out in Los Angeles and stumbles through one faux-pas after another. Also created by Larry David, the series follows Larry in his life as a semi-retired television writer and producer. Also stars Cheryl Hines, Jeff Garlin and Susie Essman and also features guest stars by celebrities playing fictionalised versions of themselves.
Adrian Grenier plays Hollywood up-and-coming film star Vincent Chase, as he learns the ropes of the business and the high-profile world of Hollywood. And he’s not alone: he brings from his native New York his entourage, a close circle of childhood friends, along with his agent. Also stars Jeremy Piven, Kevin Dillon, Kevin Connolly and Jerry Ferrara.
Created by Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, the series focuses on five young men who found a startup company in Silicon Valley. And in the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. A comedy partially inspired by Mike Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late 1980s.
Success hits hard. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stars in this comedy series as retired football superstar Spencer Strasmore, trying to reinvent himself as a financial manager for current players in sun-soaked Miami. Exploring the lives of former and current football players, the show follows Strasmore as he gets life back on track in retirement.
The dark comedy stars Bill Hader as a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life, he reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an aspiring actor. Barry follows his “mark” into an acting class and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the LA theatre scene. Co-stars Henry Winkler, Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Glenn Fleshler and Anthony Carrigan.
All of Foxtel’s comedy classics listed are available to stream for Foxtel subscribers On Demand via internet connected IQ boxes, on smartphones and tablets using the Foxtel GO app, and via Foxtel NOW.
