Many wouldn't want to touch the contentious issues that have divided the nation, but once again, the satirists behind the popular Wharf Revue are ready to jump into the deep end.
The creative team of Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott will present The Wharf Revue: Pride In Prejudice at Sydney's Seymour Centre from November 8-December 10.
Biggins and Forsythe will be joined on stage by Mandy Bishop and new musical director Andrew Warboys, in a show that will tackle all the hot political topics of the year - from Peter Dutton upping the "anti" on The Voice to the government's "hoarding of frequent flyer points".
"Pride in prejudice? In today's digital Colosseum, it's a big thumbs-up for bigotry - ironic that while the polar icecaps melt, the world's becoming more polarised," the show's creators said in a statement.
While the financial news has been bad, as the cost of living continues to rise, the team's number crunchers have managed to come up with a positive spin for lovers of satire.
"Satirical content is up by 7 per cent and the average laughter quotient is indexed at 8.3 per cent over the forward estimates, but The Wharf Revue defies the cost-of-living pressure by keeping the ticket price at the same level as last year! Take that, Phillip Lowe!" The statement said.
Performance times are 6:30pm Tuesday to Wednesday and 7.30pm Thursday-Saturday, with matinees at 1pm on Wednesdays, 2pm on Saturdays and 5pm on Sundays.
Senior tickets are $80 or $75 for concession card holders.
