Gay Icons

20/03/2018 @ 8:30 pm - 24/03/2018 @ 9:30 pm

Gay Icons: Tues 20 – Sat 24 March, every night from 8:30-9:30

Representing the far ends of the life-cycle of the average homosexual, two of the funniest gay stand-up comics in New Zealand–James Malcolm (2016 Billy T Award nominee, TV3’s AotearoHA) and Neil Thornton (TV3’s The Project and After Hours)–entertain you as they vie for(stand-up comedian) icon status. A different special LGBTQAI+ guest icon every night!

James Malcolm started performing stand-up comedy when he was just 17, his first time coming out as gay being on stage. He then went on to win the 2014 Raw Comedy Quest and receive a Billy T Award nomination in 2016 and 2018.

Neil Thornton is certainly the funniest married gay bear comedian living in New Zealand. He has performed all over the world, from big city pride festivals to small towns on the South Island, from New York’s historic Stonewall Inn to the Porirua Soccer club. In the United States, Neil was a regular in New York comedy clubs, and performed in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Provincetown, and Fire Island. He’s a favorite at Auckland and Wellington comedy clubs, and recently appeared in the TV3 comedy special “After Hours.”
