Get Krack!n is an Australian comedy series which was created by and stars comedians Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan.[1] The series is a satire of breakfast television and features McCartney and McLennan playing versions of themselves hosting Get Krack!n, a low-budget early-morning television programme.

Premise[edit]

Get Krack!n is an early-morning television programme hosted by Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan, playing versions of themselves. McLennan is upbeat to the point of being irritating while McCartney is more realistic about the show, but is frequently tactless. The show is run on a shoestring budget thanks to commercial sponsorship from companies producing questionable products. The production crew are either under-trained or employed as part of a prison work release programme, while guests are completely unqualified "experts". McCartney and McLennan attempt to remain enthusiastic but inadvertently reveal dysfunctional and sociopathic behaviour as things go wrong.
