Sarah Kendall

UK based Australian comedian Sarah Kendall is the first to be interrogated by The Chaser's Charles Firth and Dom Knight on behalf of Border Force. She's won awards and hosted BBC radio shows over there, and is a regular at comedy festivals here, but is she still Australian enough to be allowed back permanently?

Rob Sitch

From Frontline to The Hollowmen, from Utopia to even Pacific Heat, Rob Sitch and his colleagues at Working Dog have taken many swings at some of Australia's most powerful institutions. Now, the Australian Government, the police force and the nation's tabloid TV producers want payback, and Charles and Dom are just the guys to tighten the thumbscrews.

James Colley

Charles and Dom interrogate James Colley, comedian and writer for The Weekly (ABC), who has been using an alias, Peter Chudd, to spread patriotic screeds about why white people are not privileged enough. Are Colley's views tongue-in-cheek? Or is his racist, sexist, homophobic alter-ego is, in fact, the true expression of what it means to be Australian? Find The Chaser at: https://twitter.com/chaser

Sam Dastyari

Sam Dastyari is a Labor Senator for NSW, which would be reason enough for suspicion - but he was also born in Iran to a Muslim family, which brings him right to the top of Border Force's list. His book 'One Halal Of A Story' is a confession, but Charles and Dom demand to know more, including how he managed to obtain money from the Chinese and that ill-fated phone call from Bill Shorten.

Sami Shah

Sami Shah was briefly Pakistan's Jon Stewart, but then his satirical TV show got shut down. He's now based in Melbourne, and has toured comedy shows all over Australia and the UK. His radio series have appeared on the ABC and BBC, and his book The Islamic Republic of Australia is either a witty insight into modern Islam for the non-believer, or a threat to our very way of life. Only Charles and Dom can decide. Find The Chaser at: https://twitter.com/chaser
