Harley Breen, will tackle ‘TABOO’ topics in a sensitive yet humorous way
That’s Right, We’re Talking Taboo.
Nominated for a 2019 TV Week Logie Award for Most Outstanding Factual or Documentary Program, TABOO will return to screens on Thursday, 13 June at 8.30pm.
Over four insightful episodes, award winning comedian and host, Harley Breen, will tackle ‘taboo’ topics in a sensitive yet humorous way, while providing a sharp and thoughtful look at the reality of living differently.
The series premiere will see Harley Breen make four new inspiring friends who all have a terminal illness. Viewers get an insight into what life is like for 28-year-old Lauren who was born with Cystic Fibrosis, 34-year-old Nicole, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 bowel cancer just over two years ago, Michel, 44 who has non-smoking related lung cancer and 22-year-old Matt who has stage 2 oligodendroglioma, an incurable brain cancer.
Harley will tell their stories in a comedic way, in the hope of empowering people in society who feel like they are invisible, who don’t have a voice or don’t get seen.
Together, they will talk about things we’re not sure you want to talk about and laugh at things we’re really not sure you want to laugh about.
This season, TABOO will provide insights into four subjects: terminal illness, racism, mental illness and physical disability.
