John Gordillo – Cheap Shots at the Defenseless

He has been on the 'Classic Festival wish-list' for over 10 years so NZ’s home of live comedy takes great pleasure in announcing the imminent arrival of John Gordillo to the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival, kicking off on April 25th.

There’s a case to be made that John Gordillo is one of the key shapers of the modern comedy landscape in the UK. His may not be a widely recognised name but as a writer, director and benevolent svengali he’s helped to set many a major stand-up star on the road to greatness. In his own right, he’s a spectacularly creative comic, offering sets that use politics, romance and family relationships as jumping-off points for wildly ambitious social theorising and sparkly funny comedy. He produces shows that genuinely make you think in a whole new way while keeping you laughing throughout. His last solo show, Fuckonomics – proposing a new economic theory based on our desire for sex – was one of the most intellectually ambitious offerings the fringe has seen in recent years.

“John Gordillo is one of the smartest men in comedy. A brilliant combination and examination of the fake personal and the real personal. Typically intelligent, at times extra-ordinarily frank… this is quality, brain-food comedy. A great hour.” – The Guardian UK
"One of comedy's great thinkers. Heartfelt, intellectual or angry, he's dynamite" The Times UK
“Gordillo is an inspiration, a consummate performer with an amazing talent, passion and intellect. If you are after cheap, silly laughs avoid this, but if you want intelligent, moving comedy with a point, then you cannot afford to miss it” –

Gordillo will be bringing his 2013 Edinburgh Fringe solo show ‘Cheap Shots at the Defenceless’ to the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival.

John Gordillo will also be featuring in ‘The Big Show’
Fri 25 & Sat 26 Apr at the Bruce Mason Centre in Takapuna
Tue 29 Apr to Sat 3 May at the Hannah Playhouse in Wellington
Mon 5 to Sat 17 May at the Comedy Chamber, Auckland Town Hall
