Welcome, skip to the content.

Spend a night at the historic Yarck Mechanics Institute and Library with Rod Quantock (OAM) who has been a stand-up and, more recently, a sit-down comedian for almost 50 years.

Quantock’s shows are always relevant to the moment and change with the headlines of the day. But what Rod has noticed is that the headlines of today day are the same as the headlines of yesterday. To prove it he is reprising one of his most successful shows, 'Boredom Protection Policy'.

It is a one-man show about contemporary politics and society presented by Australia’s longest serving comedian. Then, as now, Quantock's comedy is at once topical, intelligent, relaxed and, for those in his cross-hairs, positively brutal. He is a modern day jester who targets the antics of the ruling elites and the follies of humankind with playful delight.

Tickets are available online or at the Yarck General Store or at the door on the night.
