Blowout Comedy Presents....
An awesome night of comedy hosted by Scottish comedy veteran Gary Sansome!
Gary's a rare sight in NZ in 2020 - an international touring comedian.
Gary Sansome is a tough speaking, (to English folk anyway) off the wall Scottish Comedian and MC. Gary has performed across the globe at some of the biggest Comedy Clubs in the UK, Ireland North America, Australia and Mainland Europe including Carolines on Broadway in New York City, Yuk Yuks in Toronto and the Comedy Lounge in Perth, Australia.
He has performed 5 Edinburgh Fringe Shows in 2011, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and performed his debut solo show The Bald and the Bold at Adelaide Fringe in 2014 where he was called “Amusing and Satisfying” by Krystoff Raw. His sold-out Edinburgh debut show Bald Man Sings Rihanna received both audience and critical praise including a 5 star review from Bunbury Magazine. He annually hosts Scotfest in Tulsa, Oklahoma one of the biggest festivals celebrating Scottish Culture in North America – the festival attracts over 30,000 people across the weekend.
Headlined by cult indie comedian Dan Brader. He's a Kiwi comedy veteran who's one of the hardest working comics in the country! Starting his career in 2007 in Australia he's known to audiences in NZ for his tireless work ethic as he's constantly touring around NZ and has spent 6 years in the competitive Aussie comedy scene as well gigging all over Australia. Here's what the critics have to say...
"Brader is a comic you will love or hate, but he's never dull." - New Zealand Theatre Review.
"Brader's unique comedic style set him apart." - The Southland Times
"In a comedy world that can be a bit ‘same-y’, Dan Brader dares to be different" - ARTSHUB
"Petulant upstart" - The Groggy Squirrel
"The show started twenty minutes late!!" - Australian Comedy Review
"What the man definitely has talent for is, unashamedly brutal character impersonations" - ARTSHUB
"Clearly the most experienced, Brader breezed through with a bunch of sharp, cynical and biting gags on a variety of topics." - The Southland Times
