AUSTRALIA: STILL FUCKED

Kieran Butler (Che Guevara on the Fringe, Whimsical Tricycle, **** Scotsman, **** Evening News) joins his favourite antipodean comedian, Sofie Prints, (Jesus was a Rape Baby) for the sequel to his sold-out cult hit, Australia is Fucked. Australia produced the highest ranked Catholic to be charged with child abuse – despite never doing a painting, or releasing a novelty song.

Australia is the petri dish that proved a dog-whistling, fearmongering, science-denying homophobe could win an election in a first world country in 2013. Since then, Australia’s penchant for torturing refugees, genocide, climate change denial and Rolf Harris has inspired Brexit and Trump. Now, everyone is fucked!

"An acerbic, hard-hitting and hilarious commentary on the problems facing Australia, particularly following the election of Tony Abbott's right-wing government" - Galway Independent

Kieran Butler (BBC Scotland) performed 'Australia is Fucked' to capacity crowds at the 2013 - 15 Edinburgh Fringe festivals - and proved why Australia is the joke the rest of the world is now completely sick and tired of.

"One of the top Aussie acts of the 2013 Fringe" - australiantimes.co.uk

A Fringe veteran, Kieran Butler is one of the men behind the critically acclaimed 'Che Guevara on the Fringe' satirical trilogy. (**** - The Scotsman)

This is take-no-prisoners stand-up & musical comedy that wears it's influences on its sleeve, exposes the dark underbelly of living Down Under and lampoons the myopic psyche that the current Australian government has since put on display for the world.
