Bert Kreischer Stops By Australia As Part of His ‘Body Shots World Tour’ This June

American stand-up comedian, host, actor and writer Bert Kreischer is bringing his ‘Body Shots World Tour’ down under this June. Performing first at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney, Bert will proceed to entertaining audiences at The Arts Centre Melbourne and Astor Theatre in Perth before wrapping up with a back-to-back shows at The Tivoli Theatre in Brisbane.

Bert has definitely evolved from being named Rolling Stone’s 1997 “Number One Partier in the Nation” to one of the biggest names in comedy. His many projects—which include two previous stand-up specials ‘The Machine’ on Showtime (2016) and ‘Comfortably Dumb’ on Comedy Central (2009), two podcasts ‘Bertcast’ and ‘Open Tabs’, a YouTube cooking show ‘Something’s Burning’, his book ‘Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child’ (2014), and hosting stints on Travel Channel’s ‘Trip Flip’ and ‘Bert the Conqueror’ and on FX’s ‘Hurt Bert’—have helped him succeed in finding the elusive blend of “being a cringe comedian with real insight (Interrobang).”

Admired for being one of the best storytellers of his generation, Bert seamlessly and sincerely shares anecdotes about his family and fatherhood while showing his ability to prove “that there’s a way to take his [party-boy] antics into middle-age (Forbes).” His stand-up special ‘Bert Kreischer: Secret Time’ is currently streaming globally on Netflix.

Grab your tickets and let Bert Kreischer give you shots of comedy this June!

Global phenomenon ‘We Will Rock You’ to blast NZ stages this August to September

Following the recent release of the phenomenal Queen biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, the smash hit West End musical ‘We Will Rock You’ returns to Auckland for a strictly limited season, playing at the Bruce Mason Centre from August 20 – September 7, 2019.

The hilarious futuristic comedy musical written by Ben Elton (The Young Ones, Blackadder, Popcorn) boasts 24 of Queen’s biggest hits, with the scale and spectacle that marked the band’s legendary live performances. Since 2002 over 16 million theatregoers in 28 countries have rocked out to this unique musical-based around Queen’s top-selling tracks including: ‘We Are The Champions’, ‘Radio Ga Ga’, ‘I Want To Break Free’, ‘Somebody To Love’, ‘Killer Queen’, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, ‘Under Pressure’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ and, of course, ‘We Will Rock You’.

For the Auckland season, homegrown hit-maker Annie Crummer returns to the role of the Killer Queen—the tyrannical boss of all-powerful global company that has robbed the world of rock music. Scaramouche and Galileo—two young outsiders—cannot come to terms with this bleak conformist reality created by the Killer Queen. They join the Bohemians, a handful of rock rebels, and embark on the search to find the unlimited power of freedom, love and rock music!

“‘We Will Rock You’ hits all the right notes… You will be rocked.” – Sydney Morning Herald

Theatre Co’s executive producer Regan Crummer says he wanted to bring the show back to Auckland because he believes the unique combination of one of Britain’s most successful comedy writers (Ben Elton) and legends of rock (Queen) is a winning formula that nearly 20 years on from its debut will still have audiences on their feet.

“They are going to be totally immersed in what is basically an epic rock concert!” – Regan Crummer, Executive Producer, Theatre Co.

‘We Will Rock You’ reflects the powerhouse energy and musical genius that earned the band its pinnacle position in rock history. With Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor as music supervisors behind the original production, this is a high-octane hit you won’t want to miss!

“The show is live, dangerous and more than anything else: it rocks!” – Brian May, Queen

Watch out for those tickets and don’t miss this exhilarating series of rock ‘n’ roll mayhem in spring!
