Taboo is an Australian comedy factual television series which premiered on Network 10 on 30 January 2018. The program is hosted by comedian Harley Breen, who tackles sensitive subjects and concludes with a comedy routine. The host spends time with people who are disabled, terminally ill, victims of racism and those living with mental illness, turning their misfortunate, unique situations into a comedy routine experience which he performs before them and a crowd of family, friends and the public.[1]
