The core cast consists of just three very talented writers/comedians/musicians – Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott – with one special guest performer making up a quartet each year (this year it’s comedian/actress Mandy Bishop). Between them, these four play Anthony Albanese, Pauline Hanson, Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard, Paul Keating, Adam Bandt, Jacqui Lambie, Allegra Spender and many others in this year’s revue. Most of their impersonations are scarily good, and all of them are entertaining.
Skits like Albo in Wonderland; Inner West Side Story and Albo Baggins and the Mountain of Debt give you some idea of what to expect. Other personages such as former NSW premier Kristina Keneally, Joe Biden, Boris Johnson and King Charles make an appearance in the show as well.
If you voted Labor, Green, Teal or Independent in this year’s Federal election (and chances are you did, given the result), this satirical revue will poke gentle fun at your political colours. And if you didn’t, you’ll probably enjoy it even more.
