OLLIE HORN: Pig in Japan

Unlikely Japanese TV star Ollie Horn reflects on fame, identity, and how on earth he managed to get fat while living in healthy Japan in his intelligent and revealing debut special.

“Smart, questioning stuff“—The List

After a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, lovable Brit Ollie Horn reveals how on earth he ended up performing stand-up comedy on Japanese TV, what it taught him about his country, and himself, and what made him give it all up.

“From the moment he steps on the stage we’re in Ollie’s world, where the audience are giggling from the get go“—RKB Radio

Ollie Horn has sold out shows around the world, and has traveled to over fourteen countries as a headline act: from Hong Kong to Australia and Paris to Myanmar, Ollie’s infectious blend of intelligent, aware, and surprising stand-up is in hot demand.

This is a one-off preview of the show before Ollie previews the shows at the Australian Comedy Festivals.

DARIUS DAVIES: Persian of Interest

Darius Davies is a Persian of Interest. This is the story of media manipulation, tinder subterfuge, and revenge against Ryan Air by any means necessary.

A tale of how easy it is to manipulate and change the course of the news (all whilst being sat at home in your underpants).

A show so explosive, so controversial the BBC don’t want you to see it and a rogue Spanish separatist exchange student group tried to ban it via a grassroots campaign.

“Seemingly bottomless vats of comedy in his tank” – Mumble Comedy
“Brilliant, hilarious, outstanding” – Broadway Baby
“A knockout sensation!” – Broadway World
“Bewitches the audience” – The Wee Review
“Full of verve, slightly channeling Russell Brand in his mischief, style and energy” – Chortle
