Olympico Team prior to depature to London

‘Olympico’ premieres Wednesdays @ 9pm August 1, 8 & 15! Only on Comedy Central!

The ‘Olympico’ team will bring you the most in-depth, up to date, irreverent and irrelevant coverage of the 2012 London Olympics.

Legendary sports journalist, Leigh Hart, and his team travel to London for all the top sports action, fringe action, personalities, and colour of the games. Producer Leigh Hart says, ‘We have been building up to this for ages, the Olympics only come around once every three years, so we really want to nail it, and treat Kiwis to the most engaging coverage possible, plus I get a holiday somewhere in Europe at the end of it!’

This show has everything: expert studio debate with legendary athletes and arm-chair critics, people talking in boxes to each other from different countries, and a medal table that will get updated as often as possible given the budget, and of course spot prizes (to the viewers not the competitors!)

“There are three action packed half-hour shows, and if I have my way, we’ll be doing the last one from Rio as that is where the next Olympics will be held. We like to be a step ahead of the rest.” says Mr Hart.

‘Olympico’ quite simply has to be seen to be seen. A ‘one-stop-shop’ for all your Olympic coverage, sexual health advice, and comedy needs!

Catch ‘Olympico’ Wednesdays @ 9pm August 1, 8 & 15!
