The Gospel According to Paul

The Gospel According to Paul is a funny, insightful and occasionally poignant portrait of Paul Keating, the man that – as he tells it – single-handedly shaped contemporary Australia.

Written and performed by Jonathan Biggins, this one-man show is full of intelligence and wit, and Top End audiences are set to delight in the return of this 2019 smash hit comedy at Darwin Entertainment Centre. Like so many Australians, Biggins has long been fascinated by Keating and what Keating means to Australia.

Showcasing his eviscerating wit, rich rhetoric and ego the size of Everest, The Gospel According to Paul distils Keating’s essence into 90 minutes, focusing on key biographical milestones, landmark political achievements and personal obsessions.

It shows the 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?
