Amused Moose Best Edinburgh Comedy Show - nominee ‘15
NZ Comedy Guild Best International Act - nominee ‘14
School Art Prize – winner ’88.

They say follow your dreams, but they don’t mean it. Dreams are like children, follow them too long, people get suspicious.
An illustrated, animated, comic reworking of the classic tale of Rumplestiltskin . The show is about expectations, it’s about creativity, it’s about following your dreams, it’s about failure, it’s about an hour.

I am a comedian. My previous shows have contained jokes and stories. I am also a keen artist. I thought it was time to combine these talents, especially since Rolf Harris has left a gap in the market.
I have been performing comedy on the International Stage for over fifteen years. I’ve played every toilet in every two-bit city and town. It’s good to be back. With eight Edinburgh Festival shows under my belt, as well as performing numerous times at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Perth Fringe World and NZ Comedy Festival. It’ll be f***ing great.

“Probably the most absorbing show I have seen. Completely spellbinding.” Chortle ★★★★

“Birdman’s Fringe show is a triumph. He isn’t afraid to push the limits of what society deems appropriate. He has created an hour of thought-provoking, hilarious stand-up with the added metaphors he has sculpted from well established fairy tales.”
Edinburgh Reporter ★★★★★
