It was revealed on December 4 2007, that The Chaser would not be continuing on with a third season of the War on Everything in the first half of 2008. They would be performing a new stage production entitled The Chaser's Age of Terror Variety Hour. The show's title comes from a working title used in the early production of the War on Everything, which was The Age of Terror Variety Hour. The show ran between March and July 2008. It stars Andrew Hansen, Dominic Knight, Chas Licciardello, Julian Morrow and Craig Reucassel. As for the other members of the Chaser, Charles Firth had left the group and Chris Taylor was not performing in the show as he was writing a new television series for the ABC.
It's going to be a hilarious jape of all descriptions that I can't tell you much more about because we haven't written it yet.
Chaser member Julian Morrow.
The Chaser's Age of Terror Variety Hour was the second stage show produced by The Chaser, the first being Cirque du Chaser, which was performed in 2005 and was highly successful. The show was produced and presented by small stage company "Laughing Stock", which also produced and presented Cirque du Chaser. The Age of Terror Variety Hour was made in the same format, with sketches, songs, presentations and interactive audience segments. The tour covered Adelaide, Ballarat, Brisbane, Canberra, Cairns, Darwin, Geelong, Hobart, Launceston, Melbourne, Newcastle, Parramatta, Perth, Sydney and Townsville. Tickets for the show went on sale on 10 December 2007 for all shows except for the Melbourne shows, which went on sale on 12 December 2007.Part of the appeal of doing a live show is that we can have a suite of material that we don't have to renew each week. But compared to the War On Everything, it will be a lot easier.
Chaser member Craig Reucassel.
