Event Details

Fresh from sold out shows at the Melbourne & Sydney Comedy festivals, Titus O'Reily brings his bestselling book A Thoroughly Unhelpful History of Australian Sport back to the stage for a couple of by demand ‘encore’ performances!

From Don Bradman’s focus to Steven Bradbury’s heroic not falling over and the alarming number of footballers caught urinating in public - sport has shaped Australians’ sense of self. O’Reily explores the scandalous and bizarre history which has led to this nation’s great love affair with sport.

Part history, part social commentary and part the ravings of a madman, Titus examines:

  • League vs Union, what it says about you as a person
  • Why it’s the AFL’s fault that Victorians are so awful
  • How soccer is the biggest threat to Australia since Communism
  • How cricket, is not boring, OK Sharon!
  • Horse racing, not just a way to launder your money


  • The Olympics or why Australia is only important every four years

Weaving humour and history into one hilarious yet surprisingly informative show, Titus helps us understand how sport is important - gloriously stupid, but important.

With his appearances on Nova radio and Channel Seven’s AFL coverage and with 55,000 followers on Facebook and 190,000 followers on Twitter, Titus’ popularity has been described by academics as ‘collective madness’ and proof ‘Australians have no taste.’These shows will sell out, booking early is strongly advised!
