6 min watch

In this political interview like no other, Maxine McKew talks to Jonathan Biggins’ uncanny impersonation of Paul Keating.

In 2019, the smash hit comedy about a critical time in Australian history and the man that shaped it,The Gospel According to Paul played to sold out houses at QPAC. Written by and starring Jonathan Biggins, it is a funny, insightful and occasionally poignant portrait of Paul Keating, the man that – as he tells it – single-handedly shaped contemporary Australia.

Jonathan Biggins’ performance as Paul Keating is well known from the long-running Sydney Theatre Company success story, The Wharf Revue. Beyond the canny impersonation, Jonathan, like so many Australians, has long been fascinated by Keating and what Keating means to Australia.
