Aunty Donna: ‘Improv is a bit like tomato sorbet and anchovy toast’

The Aunty Donna trio sat down to talk about their ABC series Coffee Café, why they aim for divisiveness in comedy, and ... Smorgy's Bundoora.

Aunty Donna are at a perplexing zenith in their career. On the back of touring their live comedy shows and making a series for Netflix, they’ve now finally landed a sitcom on ABC. It’s called Aunty Donna’s Coffee Café, and is loosely about the three friends – Zachary Ruane, Broden Kelly, and Mark Bonanno – trying to run a trendy café in the heart of Melbourne.

With six episodes available to stream or catch on-air, they can finally say they’ve made the show they always wanted to.
