The Logie winner recently launched his comeback project Ja’miezing, a podcast based on his iconic schoolgirl character Ja’mie King, after 4 of his TV shows were axed from Netflix over ‘blackface’ portrayals.

In July 2021, it was announced Jonah from Tonga, Offended Boys, Summer Heights High and We Can Be Heroes can be faraway from Netflix in Australia and Latest Zealand.

The programs raised questions on racial discrimination as several of the characters were portrayed with Lilley in blackface and brownface.

On Offended Boys, he portrayed African-American rapper S.mouse and performed a song called Squashed N****.

In Jonah from Tonga, he painted his face brown and wore a curly wig to portray troubled teen Jonah Takalua.

In We Can Be Heroes, Lilley played Chinese physics student Ricky Wong.

Chris has defended his kind of comedy, telling The Weekend Australian in 2019: ‘I’m not attempting to do the thing that’s trendy in the mean time.’

The award-winning comedian went on to say he would proceed making ‘clever, layered’ characters.

Defending his controversial portrayals, he added: ‘While you meet them, you think that “I do know that style of person”, but then there may be a twist, something crazy.

‘[In] the top you think that, “Actually, I sort of relate to this, she just did that thing that I do every single day.”‘
