The Year Of Voting Dangerously- a satirical look at the events of 2016

Christmas is coming, time to look back at the year of 2016 with all its perils and pitfalls. And what a year it’s been- the double D election, the Brexit vote, the dwindling prospect of an orange President of the USA, and much, much more! Now Turnbull’s struggling to look like a winner, Abbott’s backbench smirk says he would have done better, and Shorten’s carrying on as if he’d been the victor. And in the Senate, Hinch and Hanson are happy, Lambie and Leyonhjelm are laughing, Bernardi and Brandis are beaming, and Abetz is antsy.

As Malcolm himself says, there’s no more exciting time than right now to satirise the lot of them, so that is exactly what Shortis and Simpson, will do in their brand new show The Year of Voting Dangerously. Yes, just when you thought you could forget how ludicrous our political climate has become, this hilarious cabaret duo will have you laughing and crying as they look at not-quite-a-year of the foibles and follies of our political leaders. It’s funny, poignant, informative, entertaining, and very dangerous. So strap on your seat belt, slap on your helmet, and don’t miss The Year of Voting Dangerously.
