The Wharf Revue: CAN OF WORMS

Created and written by Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe & Phillip Scott
Performed by Jonathan Biggins, Mandy Bishop, Drew Forsythe & Phillip Scott

The much-loved Wharf Revue returns in its newly independent iteration. After more than twenty years entertaining audiences at Sydney Theatre Company, the much-loved Wharf Revue emerges blinking from the latest Lockdown in a newly independent iteration.  Hilarity will ensue.

The Wharf Revue team of Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott is back with Amanda Bishop. They have baited their hooks and are opening another can of worms on a new wharf, to trawl for every political flathead, groper or yellowtail that floats into view. Then the catch of the day will be filleted, battered and grilled and served in a spicy satire sauce with a topical garnish. (Chips extra)

“The indefatigable and hilariously sharp-witted Wharf Revue team just keep getting better and better”

Canberra Times


The Wharf Revue is setting out to sea again on a journey of satirical discovery - but this time under its own steam. All hands on deck for a daring adventure as they navigate the dire Straits of Covid, sail round the treacherous Horn of Scomo, steer well clear of the empty Cape of Pauline, only to be becalmed in the Nationals Bermuda Jacket Triangle before stumbling across a New World, filled with hope and promise! Or not.

Join the regular crew of creatives Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phil Scott - along with their figurehead of talent Mandy Bishop - as they bravely voyage to the bottom of the barrel.


"So hysterical that twice I was brought to tears – an activity usually reserved for funerals, Puccini and hitting my thumb with a hammer.”  Sydney Morning Herald
