Sam McCool: Poli-Tricks – Sydney Comedy Festival


Democracy is dead. The fairy tale is over.

We’ve gone from Prince Charming to Prince Charles, from Transylvania to Trump ’n’ Melania, from Snow White to Far Right. The world is now caught in a Figure 4 Leg-Lock between Trumpelstiltskin and Vladimir Ras-Putin… without a viable Brexit strategy! Who will win, the ‘Pussy Grabber’ or the man who made ‘Pussy Riot’ go quiet’?

Will Merkel, May or Gladys save the world from too much testosterone, or will they become clones of the same clowns?

Can we trust Vlad, Angela, Theresa, Francois, Kim-Jong, Ban-Ki, Modi, Shinzo, Malcolm, Pauline or ‘The Donald’ to throw a political party that won’t go off with a Big Bang? Or will we all just end up Citizen Kane’d.

In 2016, Sam McCool sold out shows at Sydney Opera House, launched his first stage-play “Lighten Up”, and completed a World Comedy Tour across 4 continents.


Doors at 6pm for a 7pm start
