Co-creator and star of The Wharf Revue, Jonathan Biggins targets one of Australia’s most compelling and enigmatic leaders in this unmissable one-man comedy.
Full of intelligence and wit, it’s a funny, insightful and occasionally poignant portrait of Paul Keating, the man that (as he tells it) single-handedly shaped contemporary Australia.
Showcasing Keating’s eviscerating wit, rich rhetoric and ego the size of Everest, Jonathan distils down the essence of Keating - visionary, reformer, rabble-rouser, true believer – and the Bankstown boy who quickly realised that to get things done in political life it’s better to be needed than loved.
“In all my years performing The Wharf Revue, one character remained a constant favourite of the audience: Paul Keating. I can’t think of a more entertaining or significant figure in recent Australia history with whom to spend an evening. All iceberg, no tip.”
“Biggins almost out-Keaters Keating... If only we had people this clever running the country.”
