About The Event
James Nokise: God Damn Fancy Man
Winner of the 2019 prestigious “Fred Award” for best NZ show at the NZ comedy festival. This is a MUST SEE ticket.
Joyful, daring and undeniably sharp, God Damn Fancy Man is the hotly anticipated new show from critically acclaimed, internationally award-winning comedian James Nokise.
Covering a thrilling whirlwind of topics with skilful ease and exhilarating energy, Nokise's brand of joyously cathartic stand up will twist it's way into your psyche and leave you delighted.
Host of RNZ's ground-breaking podcast Eating Fried Chicken in the Shower.
"Nokise is a joy to have on stage” ★★★★★ - The Scotsman, UK
As punishment for his self-aggrandising craftiness and deceitfulness, Sisyphus was forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill only for it to roll down whenever it neared the top, consigning him to an eternity of useless efforts and unending frustration. Join award-winning comedian Matt Stellingwerf as he rolls his own boulder... searching for meaning in a life, seemingly, wasted. From his worthless PhD to his obsession with Wikipedia. From the pointless lies he tells to the hubris of thinking he's worth listening to in the first place. Is there joy to be found in uselessness? Maybe...
Matt has won four NZ Comedy Guild Awards, including Best Newcomer, and been nominated for the much coveted Billy T Award, as well as several others.
