Election Special: Stand-Up … and Be Counted – Aamer Rahman

Election Special: Stand-Up ... and Be Counted - Aamer Rahman

In the lead up to the Australian Federal Election, comedian and writer Toby Halligan hosted Australia’s sharpest political comics as they pulled apart the bizarre, the absurd, the dismaying and the disastrous antics of Canberra’s finest. They talked policy, strategy, oratory, zingers, stunts and blunders from the campaign trail; no party or politician was safe.

Join us for a bout of comedy designed to cure even the worst cases of electoral dysfunction.

Presented in partnership with Political Asylum.
