“Thank God you’re here! Darren has been bitten by a snake, and you’re the only doctor that can save him. By the way, I’m also pregnant with your triplets!”
Between 2006 and 2009, such absurdity was a staple of Australian television. This is all thanks to the Network Ten comedy series, Thank God You’re Here.
In this programme, a series of comedians are tasked with walking through a blue door into unknown situations. They are then greeted by the line, “Thank God you’re here!” What follows is hilarious chaos. These comedians have to work what situation they’re now in and improvise their way through it.
These situations could be anything from an adventure on Mars to a Colosseum battle in Ancient Rome.
Tragically, such shenanigans have been off the air for a hot minute now. But as of 2023, they are back on the menu. Here are the Thank God You’re Here details you need to know.
Who Hosts Thank God You’re Here?

While Thank God You’re Here hasn’t announced its stars yet, we’d be surprised if some of Australia’s best comedians didn’t grace this programme. Think Tom Gleeson, Becky Lucas, and Kitty Flanagan.
