2013 Billy T nominee Eli Matthewson, is one to watch!

Just when Eli thought he’d mapped out an acceptable alternative to mainstream adult life around computer games, boys and light work, he has a crisis. Somebody’s moved the goal posts and introduced the Marriage Equality Bill. Faced with sudden adulthood, Eli takes a hilarious and insightful look at his new responsibilities as a gay man.

Proposition: Great! is a whimsical journey of stand-up and songs through the mind of a young man experiencing a quarter-life crisis; musing on being an adult when he still enjoys playing Pokemon and drawing with felts.

Matthewson has been pegged as one to watch. A recent Unitec drama graduate, he has already shown himself to be a prolific writer and talented performer gathering accolades and awards.

His show Square Eye Pair garnered rave reviews at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and to round off an impressive run of performances, Matthewson has been nominated for the Billy T Award for comedy.

His star has not just ascended, it is positively flying!

Praise for Square Eye Pair:
"Loaded with quick humour, wacky physical comedy and references that are totally authentic...What makes Square Eye Pair such an endearing, genuinely funny show is its razor sharp observation and critique of its characters" - Lumiere

“Hilarious double act who not only give a great comedic performance but also have some brilliantly written dialogue” - Keeping up with Grid UK

“World class performances and genuinely funny” - Rhys Darby
