They’re old. They’re rude. They’re premiering down under. The Australian version of multi-award winning “Benidorm Bastards” will premiere January 13th at 7.30pm on The Comedy Channel. Australian media personality and former AFL player Sam Kekovich will host the eight episodes of “Off Their Rockers” (local title).
“We all need a good laugh, and that’s exactly what you get with ‘Off Their Rockers’. There isn’t a cooking utensil in sight which makes for a fresh change on television” says Sam Kekovich.
Yan He, Regional Sales Director Asia and Pacific at Red Arrow International says: “Sam is a great choice with his no-nonsense humor. I can’t wait to see the Australian seniors prank the youngsters on The Comedy Channel – the perfect home for ‘Off Their Rockers’.”
“Benidorm Bastards” is an outrageous hidden camera show following seven senior citizens whose mission is to roam the streets and blow the minds of as many young people as they can.
