R Bar Presents: Two Sides of The Border!
Edd Rivera is from the cosmopolitan city of Tonala in the mighty state of Jalisco, Mexico. Growing up in what some might call a very hostile environment (or for Mexicans, any given Wednesday), Edd found comedy to be a relief (read: coping mechanism) for him and his loved ones. Edd has shared the stage with top comedians in Guadalajara, Reno and San Francisco, and been performing his debut solo show “A Mexican Without Borders / Ese Wey Parece Isleño 2.0” in both English and Spanish to sold-out audiences in Auckland, Waiheke Island, Tauranga and Wellington, as well as at festivals such as Mexfestival and Sudaka Festival.

Former Texan comedian Aaron Barber found himself "stuck" in New Zealand during the pandemic. Unable to return to his adopted home in Malaysia and unwilling to go back to America for... reasons, Aaron jumped headfirst into the NZ comedy circuit.
Fresh off his hit Fringe Tour Show "Texodus" and producer and host of the hit series "Yeah...Nah Comedy" in Wellington, Aaron has been spreading big laughs to audiences across Aotearoa.
Brash and loud measured with wit and charm, he's one act you won't want to miss.

"Full of cultural contrasts and worldly humour… Aaron provides Kiwis with unique insight into our own culture, knowing we can laugh at ourselves. Hilarious." - Theatreview
“Aaron Barber easily disarms the audience with his southern charm and sharp wit. Fans are urged to catch him before he gets too big for his cowboy hat!”
