Proud to be working with the team from A Sunburnt History on their Social Media in the lead up to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Don’t miss this show.
Celebrating the 225th
anniversary of The First
Fleet and following an
oversold 2012 season, A
Sunburnt History is back
with a brand new show that
explores the beginnings of
modern-day Australia as it
Over 60 fast-paced, frantic
minutes Nicholas Waxman
and Charlie Ranger will bring to life dozens of historical figures, direct from the
pages of history, exploring the amazing, embarrassing and unbelievable facts
surrounding our nation’s earliest years.
Welcome to a world where female convicts were more depraved than the
men, where no-one, not even the Governor, Arthur Phillip, knew when a
convict had completed their sentence and where the fleet’s destination was
the Government’s last resort. A Sunburnt History revels in the opportunity to
delve into the multitude of disasters that marred the early years of our great
nation, the many repercussions of which we still feel today.
Many Australians know the story of ‘the biggest single overseas migration the
world had ever seen’, but not the details about what taking 1500 people to the
end of the earth was truly like. Audiences can expect an informative, laughout-
loud tale that will shed light on how Australia became the nation it is
If you think you know your ancestry, think again.
