Fergus Aitken: Stand-Up Comedy shows in Nelson & Takaka

Wellington comedy favourite Fergus Aitken returns to Nelson and Takaka with an adults-only standup comedy show that will leave you in stitches.

Fergus has achieved critical acclaim with his stand-up comedy shows, playing regularly at comedy clubs and events in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and beyond. Last year, he had the Nelson crowd roaring and he is looking forward to returning for more.

Recently he has been refreshing a selection of adventures, fun facts and myths. Some of the life's little mysteries will be expanded and exploded! With a stand-up comedy style based strongly in physical theatre and storytelling, he spins a yarn - and some of it’s even true. “I love observational comedy”, says Aitken, “Some of the funniest things I’ve ever heard are true... like the actor who took herbal viagra which didn’t work until the next day just as he went for his important TV audition... or the deer hunters whose bicycles were stolen by recently released, trained circus bears...”

In a varied comedy career spanning three decades and 15 countries, he has experienced many bizarre encounters with the truth… including several standing ovations at a nudist festival.

Fergus will be playing twice: at Club Paradox in Nelson on Friday 2 June; and again the following Friday, 9 June at the Wholemeal Café in Takaka.

So come out from the cold and tickle your funny bone with an evening of hilarity featuring Fergus Aitken.
