Covid-19 Update: due to the change in alert level, James Roque is unable to travel from Auckland to perform Boy Mestizo. We have therefore postponed this show and will confirm the new dates ASAP. If you were looking forward to a night of comedy this weekend, we will be running Scared Scriptless Saves the Day on 14 & 15 August, with level 2 safety measures in place. Please note: all Boy Mestizo ticketholders are being contacted with an option to transfer, credit or refund their tickets. Kia kaha & stay safe.
Fresh from rave reviews and sell-out shows across Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland, James Roque brings his hour of 'too real' laughs down south!
James has always thought his hang-ups about being brown came from when he landed on Kiwi soil all those years ago. Now he realises he may have accidentally checked in some baggage. Join him as he unpacks it all – who knows what will come out.
A local favourite on the stand-up comedy scene, James is a familiar face from Jono and Ben, Funny Girls and Only in Aotearoa. He is also a panellist for Have You Been Paying Attention? and 7 Days.
In 2019, Boy Mestizo was a finalist for the Fred Award for Best Show at the 2019 NZ International Comedy Festival.
