That Siege in Adelaide

Tuesday, 23 February 2016 to Saturday, 5 March 2016

There’s a hostage siege in Adelaide – or is there? A ratings bonanza – or maybe not? What if it’s just that someone’s got the wrong end of the stick? Laugh at the satire when the usual media suspects go down. You will never view TV news in the same way again.

Just happening being in town at the time of last year’s CBD hostage siege, it was curious viewing the disparity between the media’s coverage of those events with the what and when we found out later to have actually occurred. All elements of the media like to package major live events like that in terms of heroes and villains, facts and rumours, life and death; all dished up with a deep undercurrent that we need to be afraid. 

That Siege in Adelaide parodies all that and more. Should we all be concerned by this? Given there is not much that will change things, it’s much better to laugh out loud about it and not let those media buggers think they have us bluffed. 

So let’s hear from the restaurant owner angry about losing a day’s trade while the police diddle, the politicians who don’t want to be complicit in the causes, the ‘heroes’ who emerge drunk and the networks who love to mix sport with well, anything.

That Siege in Adelaide is that kind of show – leave your correctness at home and start laughing again about the weird world around us that tries so hard to control of our lives.


"Overall a witty and enjoyable show with many laugh out loud moments"
