The theatre of absurd comedy

When The Bug was handed a copy of Bernard Keane’s essay published on the Crikey site on Friday, we saw comedy standup gold in each and every paragraph.

We knew Bernard had put his heart and soul into that piece and so we rang him and begged him to try the material before a live audience.

Totally ignoring COVID-19 lockdown rules, we took Crikey’s political editor to an intimate room in a near-city pub where he wowed dozens of people refusing to wear masks or socially distance.

What can we say? The bloke’s a natural. We hope you enjoy his performance as much as we did.

So please welcome to the stage …. Bernard Keane!
