Event Description
The War on History

THIS PERFORMANCE SOLD OUT: But we have just added a 2pm Show. Plenty of tickets left to that.


Following a sold-out run in Sydney, The Chaser Quarterly and The Shovel have joined forces to present The War on History to Melbourne audiences for the first time.


Based on our latest book "The Completely True History of Australia", it is the least reliable, but most hilarious account of Australian history.


You’ll be joined on this journey through time by Australia’s least eminent historians, including but not limited to The Chaser’s Charles Firth and Andrew Hansen, The Shovel’s James Schloeffel, and a very special guest star, who we cannot announce for reasons that will become apparent during the show.


About the Show


On 26 January 1788 a bunch of old white men arrived in Australia and started ruining it for everyone. 240 years later, you can relive that experience by having a bunch of slightly younger white men ruin your night as they present sketches, pranks, quizzes, and a 150 page powerpoint presentation on all the best moments in Australian history, from the time Ned Kelly heroically went into battle despite having his head stuck in a postbox, to the time Melbourne was founded on the ideal of being slightly better than Sydney at everything.


The tickets includes a free copy of the book The Completely True History of Australia (valued at $19.95)
