Dead Air

Dead Air is styled as a social commentary by two sceptical accountants-by-day who moonlight as a stand-up comedian and film buff, respectively. These two former socialites (née socialists) Ryan Hamilton and Jay E Manne have hung up their phones and taken their seats in the social commentary box to provide an insight into the age-old conundrum: what makes particular forms of media appeal to the masses (but no forms of mass appeal to the media)? It will delve into why certain TV shows, films, print media, music and comedy are favourites for the masses, yet simultaneously a source of derision for those with self-affirmed ‘taste’.
