I, Jonny Potts (2015 Dunedin Fringe Best Comedy Nominee for Loose: A Private History of Booze and Iggy Pop 1996-2015), return with a new show featuring all my best stuff that wasn't in the last one. These are the bits I've been working on the very hardest and some of them are very, very good. (Some of them I am ashamed of, hence the title I suppose.)

The Festival Club hosts a limited two night season of rants, gags, talking about the 90s till everyone's sick of me, a pterodactyl and music. Many of these bits have come out of the Blacklight Comedy Club, which I run in Wellington. It's about diversity (except it's only me coming and I'm white and a man) and innovation (I'm right-handed too) and being nice. (Hey, I'm straight too. I'm maybe the least diverse and innovative person you could imagine. Why am I doing this? Shame? Yes, most probably.)

We now cross live to see what the critics are saying:

‘Hilarious’ — Theatreview
‘Hilarious’ — Wotzon
‘Hilarious’ — Ashleigh Young, Victoria University Press

Wow, that's Ashleigh Young who wrote that book and was on Kim Hill. Some other quite famous people have said nice things about my stuff too but they are ashamed to be associated with me, which is fair enough.

Look, I'm just going to try to have a good time. And if I don't, the least I can do is make sure you do. I hope I have persuaded you to give me some of your money.

Love, Jonny x
