In 1993, performer (and The Castanet Club member) Russell Cheek had a brainwave: he would climb out of unemployed – actor poverty by attempting to win the major jackpot and prizes on Sale of the Century. Now Russell takes to the stage to evoke the spirit of 1990s Australia, and tell the tale of one man’s quest to scale the summit of the ‘Everest’ of Australian quiz shows.

Russell’s true story is one of dedication, perseverance and grit. It’s also genuinely suspenseful, and very, very funny. With direction from Stephen Abbott (aka The Sandman), Russell Cheek guides us all, with the help of his very own ‘Sale’ footage, on a nail-biting journey through a retro minefield of golf clubs, models, cars and cash – and potential national humiliation.

Who Am I? has charmed and delighted audiences of all ages in Sydney, Newcastle and Canberra, and at the 2016 Adelaide Festival.

“Mr. Cheek has a definite charm and charisma that makes his chronicling a carefree and comic delight.”

Australian Stage

“Russell Cheek is a master narrator. He takes the audience on a wild ride through the history, glamour and bad attire of 1990’s commercial television.”

The Upside News (Adelaide)

“ … a winning, warm and rewarding seventy minutes in the theatre.”
