No Cabaret for Old Men
Featuring Jonathan Biggins & Phil Scott
We’ve brought out the big guns to launch The Joan’s Live & Unlocked Season.
Direct from the Tilbury Hotel (via 46 years in the Wharf Revue), Jonathan Biggins and Phil Scott give a veritable masterclass in cabaret – with neither the mastery nor class.
Together, these lightly-seasoned performers pick away at the many strands of the cabaret art form – Audition Cabaret, Name-Drop Cabaret, Weimar, Broadway, Political, and the ever-popular “Revisit Any Old Material During The Covid Crisis” format.
Aside from their Wharf Revue fame, which has made them a household word from the Crossroads Hotel at Casula to the Apollo Restaurant in Potts Point, Jonathan Biggins is well known as a performer, playwright, director, host and satirist. His touring one-man Paul Keating show, The Gospel According to Paul was a sellout at The Joan, and his work (with Mandy Bishop) for Q Theatre as part of its highly successful Short Message Service project will premiere on Friday 28 August. (don’t miss it – register for a free ticket here.)
Phil Scott is a writer, actor, pianist and composer, who won awards for his solo cabaret performance in Reviewing the Situation, and co-wrote many shows with Trevor Ashley, including Fat Swan and The Bodybag.
Biggins and Scott have also been involved in several highly successful children’s shows for the Monkeybaa Theatre Co. But this is not one of them.
