Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean Claude Van-Damme and Steven Seagal. Some of the greatest action heroes to come out of the 1980s. But there’s one hero the world forgot to remember – Rex O’Naugh.

Revel in an hour of action and comedy that collide with a fly-kick to the chest of tragedy. You better buckle up for your own safety as this show relives the highs and lows of the ultimate man of action. Just remember, you’ve gotta touch the ground before you can reach the sky.

You remember fairy tales, right? Those stories of witches and wolves, of perils and princesses, of knights and nightmares. Well, this is all those things you remember from your childhood, but completely improvised and superbly shambolic.

Join The Rat King as they deploy their unique brand of spontaneous silliness to take you on a journey to a fantastical land of derring-do with ludicrous characters, half-arsed quests and outrageous accents.

The Rat King (Doesn’t) Present…

They may not be Rat King shows, but the Rats don’t care. Here are some upcoming shows starring your favourite vermin.

Bec Melrose – So You Think You’re Funny Grand Final

Celebrating 31 years of the UK’s biggest and best comedy newcomer competition. After months of regional heats, these guys are the funniest of the hundreds of applicants! Previous winners and contestants have included Dylan Moran, Lee Mack, David O’Doherty and Peter Kay! Who will be crowned the funniest this year?

AJ Lamarque – Dungeons & Drag Kweens

Presenting Australia’s first drag-inspired comedy show! The costumes are sickening, the characters are fierce and the rest is… well, made up!

Dave Allsopp – Dial M for Murder

Set in England in the 1950s, when convicted murderers faced the hangman’s rope, this famous thriller will have you on the edge of your seat. When what seems like a foolproof plot, involving blackmail, coercion, murder and intrigue, does not go exactly to plan, the results are devastating.
