We’re gonna party like it’s 1829!
Presented by Hobart Comedy Tours

From the shamelessly talented team who brought you the sell out Festival of Voices hits Horrible Hobart and The Unfairer Sex Tour this is the darkest, most bent, most depraved dive into Hobart’s musical entertainment history, in the country’s oldest pub. Hobart was one of the most cosmopolitan, fun and filthy ports in the world. And Georgians had literally %^*% all else to do.

The songs of sailors and those who entertained them are presented with historically matched beverages such as Governor Davey’s Blow Me Skull Off. So come along to learn shocking and outrageous truths about this city’s transgressive past, drink and sing along with one very feminine sailor and a bearded bawd.


Duration: 1hr
