Pushing The Boundaries of The Spirit of Cricket

Denis Carnahan is bringing his hilarious one-man cult hit musical comedy show Cricket The Musical to Melbourne for the first time at MEMO Music Hall, Saturday 10 Feb 2024.

Cricket has more controversy, pantomime, heroes and villains than any music theatre librettist would dare to make up. All it needs to become a musical . . . is music! So Australia’s hardest working musical sports satirist uses his unique spin, along with songs, videos, sketches and caricatures to create a high energy and hilarious one man live show – Cricket The Musical,

The current season has been filled with its own melodramas, pushing the boundaries of The Spirit Of Cricket – with Bazball, the Wandering Bairstow, feral Lords, Mankads, the rain drawn Ashes, public player stoushes, moral victories and the first ever Timed Out. Add to these the game’s history of treachery, villainy, facial hair, and illegal abrasives, and you just couldn’t make this stuff up!

For almost two decades, Carnahan has been producing songs and parodies about the many colourful characters and controversies Australian Sport produces. They feature regularly on ABC Grandstand, and have previously featured on The Footy Show, Fox Sports, Triple M and many more. His songs about Stuart Broad’s sportsmanship, MCC selection policies, and Mitchell Johnson’s moustache and other sports have had millions of hits on YouTube.


“Great show. Really enjoyed it” Ian Chappell – if you don’t know who he is, this might not be the show for you.

“Hilarious. My favourite musical – even better than The Lion King” Ryan, aged 14

“…takes you through the eras with song, laughter and characters.

“Great fun performed by a mad genius’’ Andrew Moore – ABC Sport commentator

“Had me in stitches. And I needed a laugh after India beat Australia 
“Mary – cricket fan from Esperance WA
“It’s Brilliant. He’s the Spinal Tap of Australian sport”  Jim Wilson – Sports broadcaster.
