The Betoota Advocate Roadshow
Australia’s oldest newspaper is hitting the road!
Following mass lay-offs in Australian media and the merger of Channel 9 and Fairfax, The editors of The Betoota Advocate will visit each corner of the country explaining how, in this day and age, they have managed to keep a newspaper in the black.
In a brutally honest 90-minute presentation, editor Clancy Overell and editor-at-large Errol Parker—along with a very special guest—will treat audiences to a no holds barred live show in true Betoota-style, filled with their trademark wit and humour.

“This is the first of its kind, it’s the first time The Advocate has been invited to spearhead such a project. Since our transition into digital media in 2014, we’ve garnered this cult-like following around the country and we felt it time to head out on the road and meet the people who’ve helped shaped our humble outback newspaper into what it is today” - Clancy Overell
Fast becoming one of Australia’s most widely read news publications, The Betoota Advocate has won over disenchanted millennials and attracted attention internationally with its jocular headlines. Fan favourites include ‘ Builder Shocked As Apprentice Comes Back From Bunnings With Tartan Paint, Box Of Bright Sparks’, ‘Demolished Cheeseboard Suggests The Girls Are Having A Real Crack Tonight‘, ‘Reversing Boat Trailer Results in Chorus of Woo Sounds From Nearby Dads‘, ‘Kim Jong-un promises Bob Katter He Won’t Nuke Cloncurry’, ‘Inner City Leftie Saves The World By Positing Leftie Stuff On Facebook To Other Lefties’, and ‘Australia Enjoys Another Peaceful Day Under Oppressive Gun Control Laws’.
Whilst The Betoota Advocate has long thrived in the print, online, radio and podcast worlds, this will be the first time it is brought to life on stage.
