Sully O'Sullivan: Kiwi Comic in Exile
When?Start time: Wednesday 7:00pm (21 March)
End time: Saturday 8:00pm (24 March)
He's been declared a highlight of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival by The NZ Herald, a highlight of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival by The Scotsman, featured on Australian TV’s 'The Comedy Channel', won Canada’s annual 'Improvaganza' Tournament, and performed at the UK's biggest rock festival 'Download' every year for the last 11 years straight.
After becoming the first ever Wellington based winner of NZ's national Raw Comedy competition and appearing in 4 series of TVNZ's original stand-up series Pulp Comedy, Sully O'Sullivan did something that was then unthinkable for a Kiwi Comic, he broke the international circuit, and simply never came back.
Since then he's gigged in the USA, Ireland, Spain, Romania, Belgium, Scandinavia, the UAE and the Sultanate of Oman. He's hosted 3 comedy tours of Croatia, graced the stage with the late great Robin Williams, hardcore wrestling legend Mick Foley, and supported cult heavy metal comic Steve Hughes on 2 UK national tours spanning over 100 shows.
Based in Manchester England, come and see why Sully O'Sullivan might just be the most successful New Zealand Stand-Up Comic you've never heard of.
