‘Cunk On Earth’ Plot, Cast, Release Date, And Everything You Need To Know

Mockumentaries are famous for a reason: they make you laugh uncontrollably and hysterically. “Cunk on Earth” is one such mockumentary, starring Diane Morgan as Philomena Cunk. Since Diane Morgan has starred in numerous series before and is a famous name in the UK, we are excited to see her in “Cunk on Earth” on Netflix soon. Let’s dig into the plot and everything we know about the upcoming series.


‘Cunk On Earth’ Plot: What Is the Show About?

The plot is simple and funny; Philomena Cunk is a clueless and uninformed journalist, and she attempts to make sense of the world and its history. With each episode, Cunk covers a different topic. For example, she asks questions about the origin of the universe and the history of the British monarchy. She also has questions about the life of Shakespeare. Remember Borat Sagdiyev, played by Sacha Baron Cohen? Philomena Cunk is a character very similar to Borat, who interviews real people. Throughout the series, Cunk’s lack of knowledge is played for comedic effect as she presents her skewed and absurd interpretations of the topics she covers. Also, she often interrupts the people she interviews to ask irrelevant questions or make absurd comments. Not only does the show smartly present comedic elements, but it also satirizes how information is presented on television. The show is witty and smart in showing how some complex topics are presented on television for the sake of entertainment.


‘Cunk On Earth’ Cast

“Cunk on Earth” features an ensemble cast of talented actors and comedians. The show is led by Diane Morgan as the titular character, Philomena Cunk. The character “Cunk” first appeared in Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe back in 2013. You would be surprised to know that she had her own segments in the series. Diane Morgan was later given her own series called “Cunk on Britain,” which is somewhat similar to “Cunk on Earth.” Additionally, Diane Morgan has appeared in numerous series, like “After Life” and “Mandy.” Diane Morgan’s portrayal of the clueless and uninformed journalist Cunk has been widely praised by critics and audiences alike.

Besides Diane Morgan, the show also stars Jim Al-Khalili. He is a science commentator in the British media. A famous personality who is a physicist and author. He is also a BBC presenter, and that makes the show even more hilarious and authentic because it stars a real BBC presenter who will be answering satirical questions by Cunk. He is also a professor at the University of Surrey in England. We also have Shirley J. Thompson in the series, who is also a professor in the field of music. She is also a composer who was awarded the OBE in the 2019 Queen’s New Year’s Honours List, which is a big thing in the UK. It will be fascinating to see a personality like her in a mockumentary. According to sources, the series will also have a guest appearance by Lisa Kudrow, who is very well known for her role in “Friends.” She is also a comedian like Diane Morgan, and it is inevitable to have a few gags while we witness two comedians in a mockumentary.

The series was created by Charlie Brooker. Charlie Brooker is a British comedian, writer, and television presenter, best known for his work on the anthology series “Black Mirror” and “Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe.” He is a multi-award-winning writer and has been widely praised for his unique brand of satire and dark comedy. Along with him, the show was produced by Phil Clarke. He is a British producer and director, best known for his work on “Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe” and “Inside No. 9.” He produced “Cunk on Earth” and directed several episodes of the series.
