Third time in NZ is a charm for English comedian, Markus Birdman as he returns with his brand new show that debuted at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2014.

Growing up the son of a preacher man, his father made Markus endlessly draw Bible stories. Markus doesn’t remember much of the stories, but his drawing is hellishly good.

So he thought it was high time to combine his devilish drawings with his talent for short jokes and tall stories and so his new show was born. A modern day comedic take on those Brothers Grimm classics: Cinderella, Rapunzel, and the original parable of Short man syndrome, Rumpelstiltskin. A reality tale for the 21st Century. A hilarious children’s fable for adults, with pictures.

“Probably the most absorbing show I have seen. Completely spellbinding.” - 4 stars Chortle.co.uk

"Birdman is the all-round package; witty, controversial, hip, topical and silly. A master of timing and physical comedy, he made me laugh so hard it hurt" - BBC

Part of the 2015 NZ International Comedy Festival in cahoots with Old Mout Cider, running from 24 April – 17 May. To get The Latest on all the comedy shows on offer, practical information about the Festival, access to competitions and special deals, head to comedyfestival.co.nz.
