Australian 'news of the week' show Have You Been Paying Attention? is getting a Kiwi comedy twist starring our very own Vaughan Smith! 

The new weekly series is big on laughs, turning headlines into punch lines, with nothing being off-limits and a hilarious new way to digest the week’s news.

Comedian, actress and host of TVNZ 2’s The Great Kiwi Bake Off; Hayley Sproull will take on the role of host, trying to keep five comedians in-line each week. Those keeping Hayley on her toes are regular contestants, our very own radio funny man Vaughan Smith and comedian Urzila Carlson. 

Have You Been Paying Attention? will test New Zealand’s comedy talent in a battle of wits each week. Regulars Vaughan and Urzila will showcase their current affairs prowess alongside three rotating guests, unpacking the hot topics of the week: politics, sports, pop culture news and international affairs to test just who’s been paying attention…

Have You Been Paying Attention? is set to premiere on TVNZ 2 later this year.

Be part of the audience! See the action play out LIVE, as our contestants show off their knowledge of all-things news of the week and more importantly - just how well our contestants have been paying attention! For more information PLEASE CLICK HERE.
