Retired Comedian Gets Great Review!

I am so happy I just have to share this with the whole world – or at least the 7 people who’ve found this page by accident. I am performing a few gigs for kids during this years Auckland Comedy Festival and yesterday’s gig got reviewed. Check it out.

Mike Boon’s piece is a story about Princess Isabella, a dissatisfied princess whose father decides she needs to be married off and invites a bunch of suitors over. He uses an array of silly hats and voices, reminiscent of Spike Milligan. I’m glad they dragged him out of comedy retirement to do the show (he’s now a teacher) because his satirical storytelling got my boy out of his slump of self-pity, and laughing again.

Thank you to Theatreview for their generous outpourings. I’m stoked!!!
