Steve Murphy and Javier Pena, the DEA agents whose actions inspired the popular Neflix series 'Narcos', return to Australia next year for another speaking tour about the infamous Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar.
Last here in 2017, Steve and Javier are back with an updated show 'A Conversation With Steve Murphy & Javier Pena', which explores the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar and the Medellin Cartel as well as their own involvement with bringing down the undisputed 'king of cocaine'.
The wealthiest, most powerful and most violent criminal of the 20th century, Pablo Escobar ruled his snow white empire with ruthless impunity and eliminated any who stood in his way, including three Colombian Presidential candidates, an Attorney General, several Justice Ministers, more than 200 judges, more than 1000 police officers, an unknown number of competing drug traffickers and perceived enemies, and countless innocent people caught in the crossfire.
The legacy of Pablo Escobar - who at his peak controlled more than 80 per cent of all the cocaine distributed in the US - and the men who captured him was brought to the screen in the Netflix series 'Narcos'.
Steve and and Javier's live show will also shed light on their own input into the series, where they reveal information that doesn't feature in the show, followed by an audience Q&A session.
“Are you a 'Narcos' fan? Do you know what’s fact and what’s fiction?,” Steve asks.
“Join Javier and I as we return to Australia and New Zealand to tell the true story about Pablo Escobar. We’ll answer questions about Pablo, the Cali Cartel (from season 3), Kiki Camarena (from season 4), the making of 'Narcos', and even our personal lives.
“Our last trip Down Under was one of the best tours of our lives, and we can’t wait to return in July 2019. Come and join us for a night you’ll never forget. We’re gonna have some fun, don’t miss out!!”
