It's no secret that you don't really know a person, until you've travelled together. That is exactly what Philippe Geubels, the Flemish comedy darling, does in Taboo. He invites four guests for a holiday in a lovely country house. The guest list is very diversified. In season 2 we meet people with autism spectrum disorder, people who've struggled with addiction, women, seniors, people with an unfulfilled desire to have kids, people with a different gender identity and people with a striking appearance.
But that's not all of it. Humour prevails in Taboo. Philippe remains Flanders most popular comedian and he does what he does best: stand-up comedy. Philippe performs a comedy set on every topic, with his new friends front row, at a venue packed with people who are in the same situation.
All these ingredients blend into Taboo. It is the very first Philippe Geubels tv-show for één and it's a unique mix of human interest and comedy, connecting people through humour.
The remarkable qualities of Taboo didn't go unnoticed abroad. In Australia, Switzerland and Canada a remake has already aired. At this very moment, production is under way in Spain. Options to produce Taboo are sold to the USA, England, France, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
