The Book Of Kevin: He’s From Queensland And He’s Still Here To Help


After nearly two years in self-imposed exile Kevin Rudd is finally prepared to break his silence in his tell-all autobiography ‘Here to help.’ Join the team from ‘Year of the Abbott’ and ‘Australia Votes 2013’ for another satirical send up as they give voice to one of the most fascinating figures in Australian political history in ‘The Book Of Kevin’.

Set at the fictional book launch of Rudd’s autobiography, the show stars Nathan Lentern as our enigmatic former prime minister, alongside other comic characters portrayed by Youtube’s Tony Abbott Impersonator Jonas Holt (At Home with Tone  United Impersonations) and
Timothy Hugh Govers ( Year of The Abbott).

Tickets are available online or at the door before the show.

The Book of Kevin is showing at The Rocks Pop Up Spaces on the 22nd –
24th July at 7pm. The Rocks Pop-up is an initiative of Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority to find creative uses for temporarily vacant buildings, attracting new visitors to Sydney’s historic heart.
