Presented as part of the 2018 Canberra Comedy Festival.
Following sold-out runs in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, The War on History is based on the book from The Chaser Quarterly and The Shovel “The Completely True History of Australia”. It is, by far, the least reliable, but most hilarious account of Australian history.
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.
You’ll be joined on this journey by Australia’s least eminent historians, including The Chaser’s Charles Firth and The Shovel’s James Schloeffel. Plus there’s also a very special guest star, who we cannot announce for reasons that will become apparent during the show.
