Check out their website, it is absolutely hilarious. The humour has a distinct Australian flavour with it's focus on current affairs but much of it should be universal.
New TV program on ABC Friday's 9:45pm
Interview with Craig Reucassel
The Chaser television show mocks politicians, harasses high-profile identities and sometimes leaves a trail of anger and confusion.
Take the comedy show's team recent controversial stunt outside the Sydney inquiry into wheat exporter AWB.
A crew from the satirical news program confronted AWB executive Charles Stott with a huge cheque made out to former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and asked him to sign it.
Commissioner Terence Cole, who is investigating hundreds of millions of dollars in kickbacks paid to AWB to Saddam's regime, did not appreciate the joke.
"I intend to have it further investigated," he told the inquiry after Stott's lawyer complained his client had been "completely shaken" when confronted by a "complete lunatic".
The AWB ambush was filmed as part of the ABC's new series The Chaser's War On Everything.
The incident came just weeks after Chaser member Chas Licciardello stuffed raw meat down his pants at Sydney's Big Day Out music festival.
His aim was to confuse and test the awareness of sniffer dogs and catch it all on film.
Licciardello says police were at first bemused, but then questioned him for an hour and appeared to be looking for an excuse to charge him.
Chaser member Julian Morrow says the show's intention is to be topical, sharp, funny and cynical, but not to generate anger.
"We don't do things to be deliberately controversial or aggressive," Morrow said.
"We do things because we think it's the right thing to do or we think it's really funny. A lot of the time we think things are funny and other people think it's being insensitive. Then we cop criticism."
Morrow says the show's satirical approach to global issues and world leaders receives positive feedback.
In the past they have ambushed figures including foreign minister Alexander Downer, attorney-general Philip Ruddock and former Labor leader Mark Latham.
Some laugh, some don't, but Morrow says they all watch the show later.
"You hear the stories about cartoonists who do really insulting caricatures of politicians and public figures and then get a call from that person asking to buy the cartoon and we have that similar thing," laughs Morrow.
"Often we think that a politician won't like what we are about to do in a stunt.
"But afterwards they all say they enjoy the show. We all think we must be doing something wrong if they like it!"
In a few short years, The Chaser has become a satirical media empire.
The concept behind the show began in 1999 with Charles Firth, Craig Reucassel, Dominic Knight and Morrow launching a fortnightly satirical newspaper.
The Chaser team has since expanded to include Andrew Hansen, Chris Taylor and Licciardello.
They are best known for the ABC TV series The Election Chaser (2001), CNNNN Chaser Decides (2004), the last of which won the Logie for Most Outstanding TV Comedy in 2005.
Morrow says lovers of news, current affairs, entertainment, sport and culture will enjoy the 2006 series.
"We are casting the net broadly this year," Morrow said.
"If you are going to declare war on everything that's what you have to do. Even the home front is the war front."
