Charles Firth (co founder of The Chaser) and James Schloeffel (founder of The Shovel) run competing satirical organisations, but started working together in 2016 because they figured creating a satirical cartel would be a good way to make loads of money. It wasn't.
Their first joint project was covering the 2016 US Elections, where they created “Aussies for Trump” – a satirical supporter group which Trump supporters unfortunately took seriously.
Since then they've performed to sold-out audiences across Australia with the War on 2017, The War on 2018, The War on 2019 and The War on the F*&cking Election. Their debut Fringe Show was 'The Anti Experts Guide To Everything'.
Their shows have been described as "A ceaseless barrage of acerbic one-liners" & "An onslaught of razor-sharp satire"
