After a sold out and critically acclaimed season in the 2017 NZ International Comedy Festival, Ashton Brown is bringing his one man show to Te Pou Theatre for 2 nights only. ‘Anxious To Meet You’ is an adventure through Ashton’s life of anxiety, depression, ADHD & OCD. Using character sketch, stand up comedy, spoken word and ridiculous stories, Ashton brings the conversation around mental health centre stage. This (sometimes disturbingly) honest work is as touching as it is hilarious.
“Fucking outstanding! I was in ﬁts of laughter. Funniest stand up I have seen at the festival.” – Dan Webby (Producer Jono & Ben on The Edge)
“Anxious to meet you is very, very funny.” – Tim George (Theatrescenes)
The event is recommended for ages 16 and up due to content around mental health and adult themes.
