One man, one suit, eight nights. One moment to define a lifetime - or face national humiliation
Welcome back our carryover champion!
In an hilarious true story of dedication, perseverance and grit, former Sale of the Century contestant (and member of The Castanet Club) Russell Cheek takes to the stage to share the story of his efforts to climb out of unemployed-actor poverty by attempting to win the jackpot and prizes on Sale of the Century.
A truly human story of aspiration, optimism and the potential for national humiliation, Who Am I..? is also the story of 1980s Australia and one one man’s attempt to scale the summit of all Australian quiz shows.
