In other media news, TV3's new comedy sketch show 'RadiRadiRah' screens this Friday night at 9.30pm. It features an impressive line-up of local comedy talent including: 'Boy' director Taika Waititi, the Naked Samoans (the writers of Bro' Town) and Rhys Darby. One of the shows regular segments will be an animated short called 'FOT' (Funny Orange Thing), voiced by Rhys Darby and co-written and animated by Alex Dron and the Comicbook Factory's Karl Wills.

A fine animator as well as cartoonist, Karl Wills has been very busy of late. As well as working on 'FOT', Karl has also being animating a series of 'Underworld' cartoon shorts based on the comic-strip by US underground cartoonist Kaz. You can check out the first five episodes HERE with more on the way! For updates visit the Comicbook Factory website HERE.
