"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

AUSTRALIA IS FUCKED

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.

"Hard hitting & thought provoking" - Laughing Stock (IRE)

"Wild laughs... Butler's kick is formidable" - The Age (AUS)
