The Gospel According to Paul

Written by and Starring Jonathan Biggins

One of Australia’s favourite performers, Jonathan Biggins, is Paul Keating – visionary, reformer and rabble-rouser – in the smash hit comedy, The Gospel According to Paul.

Jonathan Biggins’ performance as Paul Keating is well known from the long-running Sydney Theatre Company success story, The Wharf Revue. Beyond the canny impersonation, Jonathan, like so many Australians, has long been fascinated by Keating and what Keating means to Australia. Showcasing his eviscerating wit, rich rhetoric and ego the size of Everest, this remarkable one-man show distills Keating’s essence into 90 minutes, focusing on key biographical milestones, landmark political achievements and personal obsessions.

It presents a man who grew up in the tribe of the Labor Party and gained an education at the knee of Jack Lang, who treated economics as an artform, and demanded we confront the wrongs of our colonial past.

Biggins asks the question – what can we learn today from this singular politician, and the momentous time in our country’s history he dominated?

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts

Reviews

“A hilariously funny, astute, inspiring show.” ★★★★★  Limelight

“Here [Jonathan Biggins has] nailed 85 minutes of his near-flawless Paul Keating impersonation (the Zegna​ suits being still out of reach), while having devised a script that hoists itself out of long-format sketch-comedy, and into the lusher pastures of dramatised biography.” Sydney Morning Herald
