Following a completely sold out UK tour in 2017, the frustrated news reporter Jonathan Pie is making his Australian debut – and he’s angrier than ever! Join Pie for a night of political comedy that soon descends into chaos. In Jonathan Pie: Back To The Studio he attempts to host a night of serious discussions on current affairs whilst simultaneously attempting to smash the system from within. This is political satire at its finest.

Jonathan Pie is the global comedy sensation who satirises the world of politics and the media. A frustrated news reporter known for venting his spleen in unguarded “off-camera” rants, his online videos have been viewed by millions worldwide.

In 2017 Jonathan Pie made his live show debut, a show that was described as “electrifying” (Chortle), “blistering” (Evening Standard) and “desperately misjudged” (The Times). His UK tour completely sold out, culminating in a sell-out show to 2,000+ people at the London Palladium.

Pie is the brainchild of actor Tom Walker, who first brought the character to life in September 2015. He became a viral hit when he famously ‘lost it’ outside the British Houses of Parliament, and his fan base has continued to gain momentum ever since. Tom’s co-writer is comedian Andrew Doyle, who started writing for Pie in December 2015. Since then they have collaborated on two live shows, various pieces for television and radio, weekly online videos including a response to the US election result which has had in excess of 130 million views and a book which was released in October 2017.

Don’t miss Jonathan Pie in his first Australian tour – expect high demand for tickets!

"This is more than just a slash and stab at the banality of pop culture. It is an insight into the mind of a man whose inner animal has just felt the jaws of the trap break his ankle and is howling in pain" – ScotsGay Magazine (UK)
