Character comedy is popular across the world, onstage and on screen. Success stories include Heath Franklin’s Chopper, Al Murray’s Pub Landlord, and Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat. If you’ve always wanted to take a step into combining comedy and character work, this workshop is for you.

Breaking it down into three steps, creating a new persona, building material, and shaping a solo show, Alexander Sparrow makes your first steps into this exciting genre as easy and fun as possible.

Sparrow is Australasia’s number 1 Trump impersonator and has been featured on TVNZ’s Breakfast, TV3’s Story, and The Wall Street Journal (US). His past shows (de Sade, ENIGMA, and The President) have toured, and he won Breakthrough Performer at the 2016 Wellington Comedy Awards. Having crafted multiple critically acclaimed shows over the years, this is one workshop you don’t want to miss.

“Very good.” - TVNZ.

“Comedic genius” - Regional News.

“Strangely entertaining” - Dominion Post.

“Bespoke, artisan comedy” - Wellington Reviews.

Alexander Sparrow’s past critically acclaimed shows include de Sade, ENIGMA, and The President – the latter being a surprise smash hit last year, selling out three nights at BATS Theatre, and two encore Wellington performances. It was also featured on TVNZ’s Breakfast, TV3’s Story, and The Wall Street Journal (US). His latest show, DJ Trump, is part of the 2017 Nelson Fringe Festival.

Sparrow is a multi-award winning performer and director (Breakthrough Performer, 2016 Wellington Comedy Awards; Best Director, Short + Sweet Festival Wellington). A prolific writer, he is also responsible for eight shows hitting stages in Wellington and around New Zealand in the last four years. His works have been part of multiple Fringe and Comedy Festivals.

He is excited to be performing in Nelson for the first time.
