Keating! is a musical theatre production portraying the political career of former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating.

The show, written by Casey Bennetto and originally performed by the Drowsy Drivers musical group, premiered as a low-budget show in the Old Council Chambers (a one hundred seat room in the Melbourne Trades Hall), in March 2005 as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. The show was the hit of the festival, winning three major festival prizes - the first time a show had ever done so.

A revised, two-act version of the show was devised by Benetto and director Neil Armfield for performance by Company B in 2006, with an extended sold-out season in Sydney. It was performed in this version at the 2007 Comedy festival in Melbourne, again to strong reviews, and has subsequently had successful seasons in Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra and Darwin before finishing in August 2008. « hide
