New Zealand, it's time to repent and be converted as Heath Franklin's Chopper, Australia's most wanted comedian, returns in May next year with his new show 'Bogan Jesus'. He will be preaching across the country with stops in Tauranga, Gisborne, Napier, Palmerston North, Wellington, New Plymouth, Whangarei, Hamilton, Auckland, Nelson, Blenheim, Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill.
The world has had religion ever since God was in nappies, and what have we got to show for it: wars, terrorist attacks and Christian rock. It's time religion take a hard look at itself, so Chopper is starting his own one, in his own image and giving hell to the almighty. Are you sick, lonely, or poor? Well, Chopper's church is definitely not one for you. He is looking for rich idiots to tithe the crap out but really, any sinner will do.
Boasting 2 ARIA nominations, 1 Logie nomination and over 500,000 tickets sold globally, Chopper is a genuine comedy icon. The man behind the ‘stache, Heath Franklin, is an Australian actor, comedic performer, improviser and writer. Since making his television debut on the sketch show 'The Ronnie Johns Half Hour' in 2005, he has been a regular on Kiwi TV, including his series, TV3’s 'Chopper’s Republic of Anzakistan' and '7Days'.
