"a night of uproarious laughter and cheeky hilarity… This is one Wharf Revue you won't want to miss.”

Canberra Times

It’s a new dawn, a new day, and a new captain at the helm of the ship of state. And what a state we’re in!

Inflation, rising interest rates, conflict in Ukraine, climate disaster, culture wars, COVID 19-20-21-22-23, and a looming World War Three… Could things get any worse? Absolutely! Neighbours has finished!

But there is a light on the horizon: The Wharf Revue is back! Inspired by the new national spirit of optimism that lasted for a week, the team are as keen as mustard to once again tackle the big-picture issues.

"Sharper and wittier than ever."
