Follow The Shovel



The War on 2021

Now in its fifth year, our end of year show features an all-star line up of Australian satirical talent, including James Schloeffel (The Shovel), Mark Humphries (ABC), Jenna Owen (SBS), Victoria Zerbst (SBS) and Charles Firth (The Chaser).

From the team that brought you the Contact TraciesMargaret & David’s iconic review of 2020Scott Morrison’s curry addiction, and a year’s worth of headlines from The Chaser and The Shovel, comes a show that is designed to make you laugh, but will probably make you cry.

It was a year when all Australians were first in line to receive a vaccination announcement, when the government launched more defamation cases than dedicated quarantine facilities and someone in Parliament House had a wank on a desk.
