Kinne is a hilarious comedy series filled with a feisty mix of sketches, rapid-fire one-liners and pearls of wisdom from internet favourite and stand-up comic Troy Kinne. Funny and equally disturbing, Kinne covers key modern issues such as Dating Deal Breakers, Things Said by Couples Assembling IKEA Furniture, Lies We Just Accept and What We’d Really Like to Say to Your Babies. Recurring characters include the narcissistic Impromptu Lifeguard, constantly derailed but never losing his enthusiasm for his self-appointed role as a hero; and the Actual Bachelor, who armed with sub-par personality traits and an over-abundance of confidence, pits his charm and wooing prowess against The Bachelor TV series. Joined by his key collaborator Max Price and an ensemble cast of mates with nothing better to do, Troy Kinne shares his left-field take on the benefits and shortcomings of the little things in life.
Series 1: 6 x 30’ 2014, Series 2: 6 x 30’ 2015
Nominated (2015): Graham Kennedy Award for Most Outstanding Newcomer (Troy Kinne), Logie Awards
