Public Service Announcements, Wellington’s longest running political satire, has gone full Circa to bring its irreverent and bawdy brand of humour to a whole new stage.
It’s the night of the Beehive Christmas Party, and the MPs are letting themselves relax, mingle, and forget about the craziness of the last year. But as crackers crack and leakers leak, each party will come face to face with their own ghosts and discover the true meaning of Christmas.
‘Public Service Announcements’ is Wellington’s most frequently recurring political satire show, making work every year since 2011. Under their banner “The No Fefe Collective”, Co-Creators Anya Tate-Manning and James Nokise set out in 2011 to fill the void of political satire, which had all but vanished from our stages, and have made 14 shows over the last 8 years. Both specific and broad comedy, aiming to entertain those working in the heart of the Beehive and also for an audience that doesn’t know their David Seymours from their David Langes.
No Fefe means ‘no fear’ in Samoan, and that has always been the motto of the show and the Collective. ‘Public Service Announcements’ is not afraid of making fun of those in power, nor should it be. The shows are defiantly non-partisan, mocking all sides of the political spectrum, no politician or party are safe and everyone is treated with same disrespect and irreverence.
Come join all your favourite (and not so favourite) politicians for a Christmas Party to remember. Starring Wellington’s best comedic actors, ‘Public Service Announcements’ is the perfect end of year outing for your office, school or government department. Come join us for a laugh and a drink as our politicians sing and dance their way into the new year.
