If the absurdity of the political climate has left Australia in a state of despair, then the latest Wharf Revue provides an excellent remedy to one’s despondency.
Written and created by Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott, this singing, dancing extravaganza, features Amanda Bishop, Simon Burke and Andrew Worboys joined by Jonathan Biggins and Drew Forsythe to present a hilariously side-splitting satirical view of the Federal Election – and no one is spared.
From Abbott, Rudd and Gillard to the Dalai Lama and Assange, these talented performers deliver an impressively shrewd satire. Audiences won’t have time to be bored or disappointed by any single gag or routine.
The Wharf Revue allows audiences to laugh long and loud at the truly ludicrous antics of our ‘leaders’. (SC)
