Closing out an epic 20-year run, outlasting six prime ministers and countless political gaffes, Riverside Theatres will present the premiere of Sydney Theatre Company’s The Wharf Revue: Good Night and Good Luck, as Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott say farewell to the Wharf Revue from 26 November 2020.
Don’t miss out on this one last hurrah as the indefatigable trio of Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott reunite with dazzling accomplice Mandy Bishop for one final victory lap of The Wharf Revue. It’s good night and good luck to the comedy juggernaut that’s been keeping the bastards honest since 2000.
With the planet on fire and our world leaders barely qualified to run a chook raffle, cue The Wharf Revue, with fake news, fake hair and real laughs in abundance. No one is safe and no topic too taboo in this night of sketches, songs and side-splitting satire. You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll want to move to New Zealand!
“19 years ago for the very first time, Riverside welcomed The Wharf Revue – The Year of Living Comfortably to Parramatta,” said Riverside Theatres Director Robert Love AM. “While 2020 has certainly not been as comfortable a year as 2002, this year’s national and international political shenanigans and world events in the hands of the very funny Revue team in Good Night and Good Luck are guaranteed to be the perfect COVID antidote”
The Wharf Revue: Good Night and Good Luck will have a limited socially distanced live audience. Riverside Theatres is a registered COVID Safe venue – check the website for up to date COVID safe practices, ticket information and refund policies.
