Holding the balance of laughter.

Australians all let us rejoice for the return of The Wharf Revue. The unstoppable comedic minds of Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott – joined this year by Blazey Best, have been keeping the nation’s political  and cultural leaders on their metaphorical toes since before Sydney hosted the Olympics.

In 2017, they return with an all-new, up-to-the-minute, fibre-to-the-node dose of side- splitting sketches and rib-tickling songs. (BYO hyphens.) From the highs to the lows, from the good to the  bad to the ugly, this will be a parade of the year’s most memorable characters and the moments they’d prefer to forget.

So, whether you want to calm your nerves or double your disillusion, we all need a fresh serve of laughter, dance and foolishness. With The Wharf Revue on its way into town, there truly has never been a more exciting time to be alive.

A captioned performance is available on Saturday 9 September at 2pm. Please note the audio described performance has had to be cancelled due to unforseen circumstances.
