BATS Out of Site hosts a return season of Eamonn Marra’s Man on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, the winner of the ’Best Wellington Newcomer’ award and sell out show from the 2014 New Zealand International Comedy Festival.

Man on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown was conceived one night at 4am during a very creative panic attack. It is an exploration of Eamonn’s anxiety through comedy, music, and various tangents into self esteem, the internet, generational woes, relationships and a genuine attempt of connection so we can get through it all.

This will be super inspirational.

Eamonn Marra is a comedian and writer living in Wellington. Here are some nice things that have been said about him.

“Marra’s show was ultimately a life-affirming piece of work, yet also a hilarious comedy that was more than a little bit moving” - Brannavan Gnanalingam, The Lumiere Reader

"Awkward, shaky, sweaty. He’s the un-cool guy not playing it cool." - Amanda Witherall, Capital Times

“We can all relate to his experiences and dilemmas, either in a ‘been there thought that' kind of way or on a ‘there but for the grace of some greater force go I' level.” - John Smyth, Theatreview

“The last night was crammed and I got a little choked up seeing an incredibly successful run of hilarious shows by a dude who has always supported my projects for so long.” - Ian ‘Blink’ Jorgensen, The End of Puppies
