The Chaser’s Empty Vessel

Fresh from their success in lowering the standards of Australian TV, The Chaser team are now aiming to reduce the quality of public talks and discussion, with a brand new live event.

The Empty Vessel is a freewheeling talkfest presented by a semi-random selection people from the Chaser team in a relaxed and intoxicating (ie fully licensed) atmosphere.

We’re very pleased to be using FBi Radio’s awesome new live venue experiment, FBi Social, as a platform to develop The Empty Vessel in the lead-up to the Sydney Writers’ Festival.

The Empty Vessel will be filled with different and unexpected things each night, but will always feature:

  • special guests
  • lively and/or defamatory discussion
  • hardcore Q&A
  • great yarns and great music from FBi’s very own Jack Shit.

Come along and see some of Sydney’s finest mixing it with a few of Sydney’s worst. And stay tuned to chaser.com.au for guest announcements.

The Chaser’s Empty Vessel: the only way to find out what’s really inside is to come along.

Entry: $15

Dates: 20 April, 11 May and 8 June at 8pm

Location: FBi Social is on the second level of the Kings Cross Hotel, corner William St and Darlinghurst Rd Kings Cross. Opposite the Coke sign. Train to Kings Cross or buses to Bayswater Rd.
