The sermon from the mount finally arrives as one of Australia’s favourite comic actors, Jonathan Biggins, becomes Paul Keating – visionary, reformer, rabble-rouser – in the hilarious hit The Gospel According to Paul.
Exploring Keating’s landmark political achievements and personal obsessions, The Gospel According to Paul takes the light on the hill and shines it on a man who grew up in the Labor Party at the knee of Jack Lang, treated economics as an artform, and demanded we confront the wrongs of our past. It recaptures some of the former PM’s eviscerating Question Time wit and wraps it up in a double-breasted Zegna suit.
No scumbag is safe in this show, not even our humble narrator.
