A HILARIOUS RECAP OF THE YEAR’S BIGGEST POLITICAL MOMENTS.

The all-singing, all-dancing, side-splittingly funny solution to all the world’s problems returns for another year of satirical genius. The West is crumbling, democracy is besieged and the world is run by morons with funny hair. You have to laugh. And that’s exactly what The Wharf Revue delivers. The indefatigable team is back once more to dig through the year’s political dirt and unearth comedy gold. From the movers to the shakers, from the winners to the losers, the stage will be filled with uncanny impressions of the year’s most memorable characters and the moments they’d prefer to forget. Stalwart performer Drew Forsythe returns with special triple-threat guests including the hilarious Simon Burke. The choreography is tight, the wigs are loose, the punchlines are loaded. Everything is ready for a big night of laughter and mayhem.

“Has no equivalent anywhere else in the country.” Daily Review

“It is truly is a must see.” Sydney Arts Guide

“A welcome dose of political satire and budgie-smuggling hilarity.” Limelight

“An uncompromising choice for a knockabout entertainment and it will bring tears to your eyes. Stage Noise
