Health Franklin's Chopper Returns for NZ Tour
After a sell-out extended season earlier in the year, Australian comedian Heath Franklin is bringing his Chopper: Repeat Offender show back to New Zealand, performing in WellingtonWhanganuiAucklandKerikeriBlenheim and Christchurch.

The premise of Repeat Offender has been described as: "That moment where every part of your body wants to smash something in half, like an amphetamine-addled Godzilla, but takes a few deep breaths, reassesses the situation and then does it anyway."

Franklin has made regular appearances on New Zealand television as Chopper, and has sold over 250,000 tickets in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

PRESS RELEASE:


Laughing Stock presents Heath Franklin's Chopper in Repeat Offender - Back by popular demand

Back by CHOPular demand, our fave ex-con from across the ditch, Chopper, returns to NZ for a special limited 6 centre tour of his 2014 hit show Repeat Offender! 

After a huge sell-out extended season in May-June this year, he’s coming back to some of his favourite haunts – Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch – and giving some new towns a stab - Wanganui, Blenheim and Kerikeri.

A staple now on Kiwi TV, in his regular appearances on 7 Days and Jono and Ben at Ten, New Zealand, like prison, is becoming a bit of second home for ol’ Chop Chop, and he’s fizzing at the bumhole to be coming back to see all his Kiwi Chopostles. 

Repeat Offender is about that moment where every part of your body wants to smash something in half, like an amphetamine-addled Godzilla, but takes a few deep breaths, reassesses the situation and then does it anyway. 

Restraint has never been Chopper's strong point, but with a great moustache comes great responsibility. The truth can be uncomfortable though, like a bum full of pine cones, and it rarely wins friends. Chopper has a growing list of people who are a bit cranky with him; but let’s face it, feelings are for losers and teenagers... because ‘feeling’ is what you are busy doing when everyone else is out getting what they want. 

Life is hard. So you have to be harder. No excuses. Just alibis. Don’t be sorry, just be less f**ked next time. 

Heath Franklin’s Chopper is a worldwide comedy icon, selling over 275,000 tickets in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.

Chopper is also promoting the release of his new live DVD, Chopper’s Sh*tlist, which was recorded at the 2013 NZ International Comedy Festival.
