Malcolm Turnbull’s bio begins with his great grandfather in the fledgling colony of Sydney, back then known as ‘Brisbane’. It details Malcolm’s early years, though few records about his 8th week as a foetus are available. Nonetheless, two thirds of the show is devoted to that specific week. The rest focusses on Malcolm’s triumph after triumph adult life. Well may you ask, ‘Is our PM actually Vinny from Entourage?’. Years ago, Jordan physically bumped into Malcolm. MT reeled back, delicately wailing, “MAHahaw”, as though a plague-ridden pleb had sneezed. Since that day, Jordan has been dissecting the origins of MT’s response. Now he believes that fate has inextricably linked him with MT to tiptoe this velvety biographical path together. Malcolm knows you love him…so this show you’ll love.
Jordan Shanks (friendlyjordies) is a satirist comedian, live radio host and podcast creator. He has been described as “irreverent”, “surreal” and “some guy who got a cheap camera from K-Mart”.
He has produced over 250 no-holds-barred videos for his YouTube channel with 250,000 followers. Jordan hopes he will foster some sort of interest in socio-political discourse, maybe even stir positive change, but most people keep asking him to dress up as a high school kid he once knew. Sometimes he complies.
Since 2013 he has spent 4 years in self-imposed solitary confinement reading thousands of articles about the collapse of the planet and then yelling about it online.
In 2016 he left the costumes at home and toured for 2 years across Australia with his highly acclaimed live motivational comedy show, Chin Up, Stooge!

Scene Changes is set on the opening night performance of, “The Curse of the Ming Vase,” a period murder mystery performed by the fictional Crampston Regional Amateur Performers.
The audience is first treated to a backstage view of the cast and crew as they prepare to WOW the audience. Of course, with such an eccentric cast of characters both on the stage and off, everything has to (and will) go wrong!
After intermission, the tables are turned, literally, and the audience will get to see the consequences on stage of all the mistakes that have been made.
Director Miguel de Oliveira said, “I would describe Scene Changes as a play within a play, a cross between the concepts behind Noises Off and The Play That Goes Wrong. Some of the best comedy is the result of things going awry. This is a fast-paced show and from Divas to Dunderheads, Larrikins to Layabouts, you will identify with at least one of these characters or their situations. Written and produced locally, it is great family entertainment.”
