Comedy Central Australia and Screen Australia are proud to announce Gocsy’s Classics, a five-part web series commissioned exclusively for comedycentral.com.au.

Produced by Hot Dad Productions and starring the Australian comedian Aaron Gocs, Gocsy’s Classics is the third locally-produced series commissioned by comedycentral.com.au in the past twelve months.

Aussie legend Aaron Gocs loves nothing more than a classic 90’s TV show, so much so he’s determined to bring back his favourites, even if it means casting himself in the leading role. Gocsy’s Classics is a five-part 90’s TV show revival featuring titles such as Ocean Girl and Heartbreak High.

“I grew up watching 90's TV shows and I thought it'd be cool to be in them, so I went ahead and did it. Be the change you want to see in the world,” said comedian Aaron Gocs.

“We’re very excited to be working with local comedian Aaron Gocs," said Simon Bates, Vice President, Head of MTV Asia Pacific & Comedy Central & Spike ANZ.

“Comedy Central is the biggest comedy brand in the world and continues to produce some of the most memorable and shareable comedy content. We’re looking forward to featuring some of the biggest names from our roster alongside up and coming local comedians.”

“We are very excited to be partnering with Comedy Central Australia for the first time on Gocsy’s Classics,” said Mike Cowap, Investment Manager of Online Production at Screen Australia. “Aaron Gocs is a familiar face on the Aussie comedy scene who has built an audience through his online comedy and a successful run at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, so it is fitting that he is now fronting his own show!”

The series will be available on comedycentral.com.au and premiere on Comedy Central Fetch TV Channel 108 later in the year.
