Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 21st-Sunday 22nd October 2017
Robbie Nicol, described by the Sunday Star Times as the ‘Kiwi John Oliver’ (a phrase he will never shake for the rest of his life) is leaving the safety of his Facebook and YouTube webseries and performing live.
Frankly, it’s your duty as a citizen of Aotearoa to be there, ready to laugh at the unending circus of absurdity that is New Zealand. Robbie will rant, frolic, sing, dance and welcome some big names from politics for a variety show of epic proportions.
