Ever had an ear worm? A niggling song that is on repeat in your head? It may have got there because you heard it somewhere, or a conversation that reminds you of a lyric hatches it in your head. The only way to get rid of it is to sing it out loud and hopefully pass it on to someone else when they uncontrollably sing along. But what if you don’t have anyone to pass it on to, no way to purge? A Musical Enema by Michael Wheatley is exactly that, a public purging of Michael’s most notable earworms and the stories and thoughts that link them together.
Follow the story of how Michael ends up living alone for the first time in 30 years with just his dog and a piano in the tiny suburb of Windale in Lake Macquarie to the soundtrack of ear worms that were on high rotation in his head during the experience.
A Musical Enema by Michael Wheatley is his first solo show since 2020 when he presented the 5 star show Forever In My Life a Tribute 2 Prince. A Sydney premier, this new show follows in the same vein, ambient piano improvisations with stories glueing together unique renditions of songs you know and love... and dad jokes, always with the dad jokes.
