Comedian Aaron Jelley brings his award-winning solo comedy hour, DABDA, to Christchurch for one night only.
Jelley invites you into the minds of five artists, each coping with their own grief… to varying success. Failed careers, failed relationships, failed dreams- everyday disappointments catapult these disparate characters into surreal inner worlds of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and, with luck, acceptance. Enjoy the mess, and thank the stars it's not you.
After four years’ grounding in improvisational comedy, Aaron Jelley has spent the last year forging a reputation as one of Christchurch’s most exciting stand up comedians and, for better or worse, a wholly original act in New Zealand’s comedy scene. He is your best friend, your worst nightmare, your favourite child, your darkest secret. Aaron Jelley will steal your heart and feed it to you.
Aaron Jelley will make you laugh.
