Season 1

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.

Synopsis

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:

Indian Builders

Played by notorious funnymen Meren Reddy and Kaseran Pillay, these are two handymen you definitely don't want doing your renovation.

The Real Housewives of Eldorado Park

Need we say more?

The Real housewives of Jay Zee

Nuff said.

Coming Soon!

Remakes of popular movies including Township Twilight and Babalaas 3.

PC Woman

She's white, blonde, middle class and English. She's overly PC about everything. Fights for causes that aren't hers and makes up causes that she feels should be causes when they shouldn't. She's pompous, condescending and holier than thou – but thinks she is Mother Teresa.

Public Service Lady

The front desk lady in all departments of public service: Home Affairs, the Traffic Dept, hospitals, police stations – you name it - she is there to make your life a living hell.

Bitter Expats

Every family has them: the bitter expat relatives who call home to tell you how sh*t your life is.

Working Stripper Mom

She's dedicated to her job and her babysitter has cancelled last minute.

Metro-sexual Rugby Team

They like to talk about their feelings.

Those are just a handful of the wacky characters that populate the screen on Sketch U Later.
