Kind Words from our season @ Circa Theatre, Wellington
"it’s entertaining. Hugely entertaining. You don’t check your watch, you don’t wonder why you’re there or what you’re seeing – you sit back and get hit (hard!) with 60 minutes of entertainment. That there’s genuine wit and wordplay and the most wonderful elements of absurdity too – well that’s all just icing."
- Off the Tracks
"expertly put together and presented by an actor/presenter at the top of his game"
- The Dominion Post
"grab this opportunity to tune into this highly entertaining spin on the increasingly mind-boggling zeitgeist of the US presidential election. Arguably Hillary Clinton / Young Lover is one of the saner campaign meetings you could attend."
"If Hillary doesn't take you, I will!"

Harcourt Hawke's Bay Arts Festival - 31 Oct, 2015
I'll be engaging in a late-night one-night stand in the Famous Spiegeltent, Havelock North. It's my first time at this festival, in fact I think it's the festival's first time, and I'm thrilled to be performing in a Spiegeltent. P.S. Don't tell anyone, but NZ's greatest playwright, Roger "Box-Office" Hall will be in the audience - even though it's way past his bedtime! Giddy times! Come along friends.
Available now at shows and, I guess, if you email me.
It's $15 signed, $20 unsigned and it's chock full of insightful analysis, tricky word finds, dot-to-dot puzzles and everything you need to land the commander-in-chief of your dreams.
