Civic Theatre Presents
A Soft Tread Production
The Wharf Revue: PRIDE IN PREJUDICE


Created and written by Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott
Performed by Jonathan Biggins, Mandy Bishop, Drew Forsythe and David Whitney with Michael Tyack

 

The Wharf Revue is back for another year of sensational value! Satirical content is up by 7%, the average laughter quotient is indexed at 8.3% over the forward estimates but the Wharf Revue defies the cost-of-living pressure by keeping the ticket price at the same level as last year! Take that, Phillip Lowe!

Yes, that’s right: today’s comedy at yesterday’s prices! NO deposit, NO interest! *

With over twenty-three years experience in the political satire space, Australia’s most trusted revue-based practitioners continue the tradition with this year’s hilarious offering: “Pride in Prejudice” TM.

With no jokes written by ChatGPT and no sketches outsourced to PWC. Completely gluten-free, suitable for the lactose intolerant and no animals were harmed during the production process.* *

*  “Yesterday” and “Today” do not necessarily reflect temporal reality - see in-store for details.

* *Disclaimer: Reputations may be questioned, political careers damaged and some sacred cows slaughtered. Due to public demand, full-frontal nudity will not be included. Any similarity to public figures living or dead is entirely intentional.
