Follow The Shovel


Upcoming Live Shows


James Schloeffel (from The Shovel) and Charles Firth (from The Chaser) are joining forces to provide a masterclass in the ancient art of lying. From political messaging to corporate deception, they’ll show you how to bullsh*t your way through the trickiest situations life can throw at you. 

And … we’re very excited to announce Mark Humphries (the tall guy who does the satirical sketches on ABC’s 7:30) will be joining us for our Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney shows.
