‘It puts me to sleep’: Studio 10’s feud with comedian Sam Pang deepens

Sam Pang has repeatedly mocked the ‘elderly’ Studio 10 panel on comedy show Have You Been Paying Attention? in recent months.

His jokes annoyed the morning program’s host Sarah Harris, 37, who challenged him to appear on Studio 10 this week to resolve their ‘nasty feud’.

And on Thursday, Sarah gave an update on the rivalry, playing a clip of Sam mocking them yet again hours on his Chrissie, Sam & Browny radio show hours earlier.

‘I love watching Studio 10. I find it very, very enjoyable after a [radio] show. To put me to sleep,’ Sam said.

‘Is there any better way than just sitting on a couch, and then waking up three hours later. How good is that?’

In response to Sarah’s invitation to appear on Studio 10, Sam added that there was no chance he would take up her offer.

Back on Studio 10, Sarah joked about Sam Pang’s resemblance to Anh Do, who is the host of Anh’s Brush With Fame on the ABC. 

‘Oh yeah, he’s a painter as well, he’s amazing,’ added panelist Joe Hildebrand.

The feud between the two programs began when Studio 10’s Denise Scott, 63, appeared on Have You Been Paying Attention? in August and threatened to walk out during filming after Sam made an ‘ageist’ joke. 

Sam joked that a cuttlefish ‘had too much life in it’ to be a panelist on Studio 10, which is known for hiring veteran broadcasters such as Denise, Ita Buttrose, 76, and Kerri-Anne Kennerley, 65.

After the show aired, Joe Hildebrand jokingly accused Sam and his colleagues of ‘ageism’ in a tongue-in-cheek Twitter post.

Studio 10 airs weekdays from 8:30am on Channel 10
