It's back for another year! The Chaser and The Shovel have once again joined forces to bring you a book that truly is a first of it's kind (for 2023).

Presented in a jam-packed perfect bound full-colour large size format, The Chaser and Shovel Annual 2023 is the best satirical annual since The Chaser and Shovel Annual 2022. 


It was the year that Australian media learned that women’s sport exists, as the Matildas became the biggest thing in Australian TV since Cathy Freeman’s race (which was before women’s sport was invented).

The cost of living crisis left many unable to afford food, rent and electricity but we all got to still sleep comfortably knowing that the supermarkets, oil companies and billionaire property investors got to see record profits. Yacht sales have never been stronger, so it’s not all doom and gloom.

We saw the deaths of people like George Pell and Rolf Harris, before the tragic news that Prince Andrew did not complete the unholy trinity (but fingers crossed).

The Voice to Parliament referendum saw Australia argue for a full year about whether we should ask Indigenous people what they think about policies that affect them, in a campaign that allowed many of the nation's worst people to say the quiet bits out loud.

Relive these stories and many more with the best headlines from The Chaser and The Shovel in 2023. Plus pages of exclusive original and unoriginal content that you won't see anywhere else because we replaced the intern whose job it is to post them online with an AI that doesn’t know how to.

Get in quick before inflation jacks up the price!
