2021 NZ International Comedy Festival with Best Foods
Circus of Shame
Comedian and local gay icon Neil D'Bear Thornton (seen on The Project and After Hours) invites you to a ring-side seat at the circus of his psyche. For your amusement and delight, he'll dive head first into the shallow pools of shame, both personal and cultural, swing on the flying trapeze of embarrassment, and walk the tightrope of self-revelation, all without a net. Expect death-defying feats of brutal honesty.

“I laughed until I cried and nearly got thrown out for snorting into my beer.” - The Residents
