The boys are back! Antiques Rogue Show AOTNZ Tour 6 Aug – 4 Sep 2010. Due to overwhelming demand and downright pleading, the record-breaking and side-splitting Antiques Rogue Show of 2007 is on the road again.

It’s the same show, except every show is different. In the tradition of the venerable BBC show of a similar name, Patrick Duffy and Greg Ellis (and Patrick with Ian Harcourt performing from Hawera to Hokianga 7-16 August), ask the public to bring along their favourite family antiques for an ‘expert’ opinion of their worth.

Audiences are invited into the genteel world of stately manors and country fetes as the two performers, with the help of the hapless owners expound on the mystery, history and likely value of various heirlooms in a manner that has no relevance to real history or artistic appreciation – or any worthwhile knowledge whatsoever.

The histories, knowledge and valuations are completely bogus, but the comedy is 100% genuine.
