About Hot Potato: The Story of The Wiggles:
This is the improbable story of The Wiggles, four friends who recorded a one-off album of children’s music in the early ‘90s and changed the global music industry forever.
Recognisable by their blue, red, yellow, and purple skivvies, Anthony Field, Murray Cook, Greg Page, and Jeff Fatt become an unlikely music phenomenon, equipped with early childhood teaching fundamentals and a dose of self-belief. Surmounting numerous rejections from industry producers, The Wiggles take their career into their own hands and become the most successful children’s act of all time.
Hot Potato: The Story of The Wiggles is a backstage pass to one of the world’s greatest entertainment stories, and features decades of personal archive footage and intimate access to their sold-out shows. It’s the story of a life of music, friendship, joy, and the enduring power of the child in all of us.
Hot Potato: The Story of The Wiggles features Anthony Field, Greg Page, Murray Cook, Jeff Fatt, Simon Pryce, Lachlan Gillespie, Tsehay Hawkins, Caterina Mete, Evie Ferris, John Pearce, Lucia Field, Emma Watkins, Sam Moran, Paul Field, Paul Paddick and Jackie Cannizzaro and is directed by Emmy nominated director Sally Aitken.
