For the last twenty-one years, with over 1700 performances including regional touring around Australia, every year THE WHARF REVIEW provides incredible sketch comedy and witty sketch musical theatre. This year the show is called “THE WHARF REVIEW – CAN OF WORMS” always satirical, always merriment galore, and with very political parodies, meet your favourite politicians as they are often seen to be.


Including USA PRESIDENT Donald John Trump, Gladys Berejiklian, Dominic Perrottet, Kevin Rudd, Barnaby Joyce, Pauline Hanson, Jacqui Lambie, Jacinda Ardern and many many more. Always fresh and topical, the current show now includes a timely reference to LISMORE.    


You will meet Dorothy and her dog Toto, from the movie film WIZARD OF OZ. A superb parody of COME FROM AWAY called GO FAR AWAY.

The winning formula always reminds me of the Australian television weekly show, from 1964-1968 of Seven Network’s “The Mavis Bramston Show”.

Just like NBCs SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, THE WHARF REVIEW combines both live and pre-recorded comedy sketches, and that winning combination allows the four cast members, to change into their next set of characters, each with their unique costumes and wigs and makeup. Highly Recommended. The next new incarnation will arrive from October 2022.

Every night is different, every performance unique, at the Opening Night performance, these comedy geniuses quickly and easily improvised an otherwise gigantic skip, into an even better comedy experience, that further delighted the audience.

Published for the first time, this book includes forty timeless satirical comedy sketches from twenty-one glorious years of Australian comedy, penned and performed by Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott.

THE WHARF REVIEW sold out season after season for the Sydney Theatre Company, cleverly plundering all forms of theatrical entertainment along the way.

Wonderful selected monologues, duologues, sketches, and satirical songs.

Fans of THE WHARF REVIEW will immediately love all of the nostalgia. Students and community theatres, now have the chance to put on their own revue.
