It was the year that our Deputy Prime Minister confessed he’d been drunk for the past three years, our biggest bank admitted it was collecting fees from dead people, and a jogging businessman did an actual poo on a Brisbane suburban street. Thirty times.

A year this momentous needs careful, thoughtful analysis. The Chaser and The Shovel Annual ‘two-in-one’ Annual is the definitive guide to understanding what the hell happened in 2018.

Bringing together writers from Australia’s two leading political satire outfits, the 2018 Annual includes 132 pages of articles, analysis and leadership updates. 



The 2018 Annual celebrates 19 glorious years of Chaser Annuals, and four shorter but equally glorious years of The Shovel Annual.

The double-sided spectacular features a free tear-out Barnaby Joyce R-rated Children's book, tips on avoiding all those invisible African gangs in Melbourne, and is suspiciously lacking in satire about any months after September.

Described by critics as "the best Chaser Annual of 2018 so far" - it's the perfect gift for anyone in your life that you know absolutely nothing about.
