Limelight Magazine


One of Australia’s favourite performers, Jonathan Biggins, is Paul Keating – visionary, reformer and rabble-rouser – in the smash hit new comedy, The Gospel According to Paul.


Full of intelligence and wit, The Gospel According to Paul is a funny, insightful and occasionally poignant portrait of Paul Keating, the man that – as he tells it – single-handedly shaped contemporary Australia.


Showcasing Keating’s eviscerating wit, rich rhetoric and ego the size of Everest, The Gospel According to Paul distills Keating’s essence into 90 minutes, and asks the question – what can we learn today from this singular politician, and the momentous time in our country’s history he dominated?
