The Jesters is a slick, sick and darkly comic look behind-the-scenes of a TV comedy show that proves the old maxim that nobody likes a smartarse – unless, of course, they are bringing in huge ratings.

From the absurd antics of the TV writers' room to the even more absurd network board meetings, The Jesters reveals the key ingredients of what goes into making the people of Australia laugh: jealousy, pettiness, treachery, extreme stupidity.
