'There ain’t no party like a Wharf Revue party
'In 2015, The Wharf Revue turns 15. Or is it 16? Everyone is getting too old to care about birthdays, but we do care about satire. So, once more unto the political breach step Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott with their signature style of seriously side-splitting satirical silliness and musical mayhem.
'As ever, there will be up-to-the-second sketches on whichever cultural malaise or governmental gaffe is news of the day. But no birthday party is complete without a dose of nostalgia, so you can also count on a parade of past indignitaries – a who’s who of 21st century embarrassments, from the politicians to the celebrities.
'Who will make the cut? Who has the numbers in the caucus room? It’s anyone’s guess.
'Rest assured, that whomsoever should return, there will be song, there will be dance and there will be some very silly wigs.' (Production summary)
