A Deeper Look at SRF’s New Comedy Show “Die Sendung des Monats”
Overview of “Die Sendung des Monats”
“Die Sendung des Monats” is a new comedy show that airs on SRF, designed to offer viewers a humorous monthly review. The 45-minute show is hosted by Gabriel Vetter, Fabienne Hadorn, and Sven Ivanić, three notable personalities in the comedy sphere. While the interaction among the three hosts may initially appear somewhat wooden, the show comes alive when Vetter, an experienced comedian, takes over. Though his jokes are scripted, his delivery makes them feel spontaneous and improvised.
The Team Behind the Show
“Die Sendung des Monats” is indeed a team effort and extends beyond the three main hosts. Additional personnel participate in various field assignments to add diversity and dynamism to the show. One such contributor is comedian and artist Julia Kubik, a member of the satire collective Petarde. Kubik travels around the country in a style that reminds viewers of Hazel Brugger’s “heute-show”. However, her initial assignment in an agricultural setting did not go beyond predictable situational comedy, primarily at the expense of awkward conversation partners. Moritz Schädler from Liechtenstein also adds flavor to the show by playing the role of a SRF angel, humorously spending public service user’s fees to varying comedic effects.
Content and Delivery
The hosts of “Die Sendung des Monats” present topical and finely polished numbers via pre-recorded segments to keep the show fresh and relevant. One such example is when they politicize the weather report in a “campaign weather” sketch, taking humorous shots at the entire political spectrum. While the concept of rapidly cutting through internet chaos isn’t new, it does expose the audience to hidden gems such as the clumsy dance video of the Stadtberner Mitte-Party.
Initial Reception and Future Prospects
The main takeaway from the premiere of “Die Sendung des Monats” is that while the team still needs to familiarize themselves with each other, the show already boasts good joke delivery and varying degrees of successful offensive play. It is clear that as the team becomes more cohesive, the show will continue to improve, offering viewers an increasingly entertaining experience. “Die Sendung des Monats” airs once a month at 9.40 pm on SRF 1, with the next broadcast scheduled for October 29.
