NZ Improv Comedy Educators Premieres Thurs 10 Feb on SBS on Demand



2019 NZ improvised comedy Educators premieres this Thursday on SBS On Demand.

Educators is a cleverly crafted improvised comedy series featuring some of New Zealand’s most well-known comedians. The series focuses on the teachers of an ordinary suburban high school.

The problem with these teachers is that they are all hopelessly inept. They have no grasp of the curriculum, no knowledge of how to follow a timetable, and no idea whether the tasks they set for the students should even be assessed or not.

Issues like parental conflict, exam pressure, turning up late, and exhaustion, are continually stressing them out much more than their pupils do. These dysfunctional educators are childishly trying to survive the day until the bell rings.

Created by Jesse Griffin, Jackie van Beek, Jonny Brugh, the cast also includes Rick Donald.

Airdate: Thursday 10 February 2022 on SBS On Demand.
