Presented by The Anti Experts

A satirical wrap of the year’s headlines from some of Australia’s top satirists.
Join Mark Humphries (ABC’s 7:30), Charles Firth (The Chaser), James Schloeffel (The Shovel), and musical comedy genius Gabbi Bolt (“Best Newcomer” - Sydney Comedy Festival) as they dissect the best and worst bits of 2023, live on stage.
Now in its seventh year, the show is a non-stop barrage of one-liners, satirical sketches, audience quizzes, musical numbers and the best headlines from The Chaser and The Shovel. Touring nationally at the end of each year, the ‘War on’ Gala has become one of the must-see shows of the year.
One night only. VIP tickets include the best seats in the house, plus a copy of The Chaser and Shovel Annual 2023 (worth $34.95).
Note: Patrons are invited to dress in black tie this year to attend this year’s gala. A red carpet will be provided for those suitably attired.
