The Wharf Revue 2018: Deja Vue
Hickson Road Walsh Bay

The punchlines keep rolling in The Wharf might be needing a facelift, but The Wharf Revue is looking as young and gleeful as ever. Those indefatigable kings of comedy, sorcerers of satire and masters of mockery, Jonathan Biggins and Drew Forsythe, are back in the saddle and gearing up for another glorious year of political satire – this time in Roslyn Packer Theatre. The stage will be bigger and so will the laughs. We like to think of it as continuity with change.
