Up-to-date political satire


Up-to-date political satire

Australia has been under new management for around 200 days now. To mark the occasion, Shortis & Simpson, between flying Qantas, driving Holden, and eating Cadbury’s, have been working away at a new satirical cabaret, Open For Business. Yes, as the Age of Entitlement sinks slowly in the West, they sing of repealing and concealing, boat stopping, and public service lopping, not to mention detention, slippery Senators, and more. And, as they sail the Sea of Liberal Blue, they won’t let ALP red, green Christine and yellow Palmers out of their sights either. Open For Business is their first political satire show since the election, and will contain the usual array of stings and barbs, thought provoking moments, laughs and tears. If there was ever a time we need a good laugh it’s when we’re Open For Business. Two shows only, don’t miss it.
