EVERYONE’S favourite lampoonists return for a special edition of The Wharf Revue packed full of their trademark irreverent, anarchic political satire.
This brilliant blend of side-splitting sketches and musical mayhem never fails to amuse.
Fresh with a new Senate that makes unrepresentative swill look good, Canberra’s never been so appealing – Australia is open for business under new mismanagement! And The Wharf Revue is back to do the audit. They won’t be deterred, not even for a bottle of Grange.
Everyone’s under the microscope: Blinky Bill and his unionised koala colony; Clive “Coach” Palmer and the Balance of Power Rangers; Hassan’s Heroes, the side-splitting new sitcom set on Manus Island; Cory Bernardi’s beach party, where even the weiners are consumed with moral outrage; the Front Page, hard-hitting jurna .. journoliz .. jernalism from News Limited; everyone’s favourite Education Minister Christopher Robin Pyne; the Canberra Tales, Chaucerian musings of three lobbyists as they make the annual pilgrimage to the capital to crave indulgence; the Royal Commission (take your pick) and the usual assorted suspects who make Australian politics such a joy.
On until Saturday, Oct 4, bookings to canberratheatrecentre.com.au or 6275 2700.
