WHAT A WONDERFUL COUNTRY

Last week is history. Next week’s a mystery. And at the end of the day, you have to laugh

Winner of the Israeli Academy Award for Best Entertainment Program every year from 2004 - 2011

This weekly sketch and comedy panel show parodies the events that made headline news over the past seven days. It begins as a satirical news broadcast that takes no prisoners, as it pokes fun deep into the heart of the country’s politics and popular culture. A regular cast of comedians shares the stage with the nation’s most talked-about public figures through a mixture of headline news, interviews and skits.

Now entering its twelfth season, What a Wonderful Country immediately won wide recognition when it first aired in 2003. To date, it is the most successful and influential satirical show on Israeli TV, attracting millions of loyal viewers each season.

"What a Wonderful Country [is] a comedy show that lives to make fun of Israeli politicians and the absurdities of life here…[and] is noteworthy for a couple of reasons: I’ve long believed that the Israeli-Arab conflict is to the wider global war of civilizations what Off Broadway is to Broadway. It is the small laboratory where trends get tested out first, or are perfected, and then go global…”
Thomas L. Friedman in The New York Times, 2014
"Just so you know, any drama between me and my friend Bibi over the years was just a plot to create material for Eretz Nehederet [What A Wonderful Country]"
President Barack Obama, March 2013
