Election Special: Stand-Up … and Be Counted

Listen to Election Special: Stand-Up … and Be Counted

Do you feel anxiety and dread when you think of the looming election? Do you feel sick at the thought of the beckoning ballot box? Then join us for a bout of comedy designed to cure even the worst cases of electoral dysfunction.

Comedian and writer Toby Halligan hosts a bunch of Australia’s sharpest political comics as they pull apart the bizarre, the absurd, the dismaying and the disastrous antics of Canberra’s finest. They talk policy, strategy, oratory, zingers, stunts and blunders from the campaign trail; no party or politician is safe.

Let us take care of you during caretaker mode.

Presented in partnership with Political Asylum.
