Sketch U Later is a South African satirical comedy sketch show produced by Clive Morris Productions which lampoons various sectors of South African society, characters and popular culture in the vein of international shows such as Little Britain, Saturday Night live and The Fast Show.
The series premiered on SABC3 on Thursday 5 July 2012, at 18h30. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are six half-hour episodes in the series.
Sketch U Later is a 24-minute comedy sketch show with gut busting, roll on the floor, cheek wobbling (both face and posterior) results.
It is a show that reflects and builds our unity as a nation through the collective belief in the absurd, the lame, the corrupt, the ironic and the downright hysterical characters and situations that truly reflect our country.
Following in the footsteps of internationally acclaimed sketch shows like Little Britain, Saturday Night live and The Fast Show, Sketch U Later obliterates all iconic South Africanisms, icons, situs, chinas, outies, laanies, belters and JZs along the way.
Sketch U Later takes the Mickey and the Minnie out of South African characters and popular culture, including:
