Wellington’s Gryphon Theatre will host The Sparrow & Boyle Comedy Festival from September 10-21. Boasting 23 performances of nine different shows, there’s something for everyone, with works ranging from Shakespeare to black comedy, political satire, and more.


Multi-award-winning Wellington character comics, Alexander Sparrow and Katie Boyle, of Sparrow & Boyle Entertainment, are the performers behind the shows. Combined, their shows have been nominated for 16 awards, winning three: Pat Goldsack’s Swingers Club & Brothel, Best Comedy, Palmy Fringe Festival; and DJ Trump, Best Solo Show and Outstanding Achievement, Wellington Comedy Awards. 


The S&B Comedy Festival includes two Shakespeares (The Merry Wives of Windsor and Much Ado About Nothing). Merry Wives is a one-woman version of the show, starring Katie, which has already seen 30 performances around the country. Two Trump-themed shows also feature: DJ Trump and Becoming Trump. These are performed by Alexander, whose impersonation has appeared in The Wall Street Journal. He was also selected as a World Top 10 Trump Impersonator by Laugh Factory, Hollywood.


The remaining critically acclaimed shows are Pat Goldsack’s Swingers Club & Brothel, ENIGMA, Fred From Featherston, and de Sade. On Sunday 15 September, there will also be three interactive tours of Gryphon Theatre, hosted by the award-winning character, 87-year-old Pat Goldsack, and Fred From Featherston, Featherston’s former #1 male model.
