After a sold-out season at BATS Theatre during the Comedy Festival, White Man Behind A Desk: Live is back for a return season in a bigger venue at Circa Theatre, Tuesday 6th to Saturday 10th June.

“Top-drawer brilliance.” - John Smythe, Theatreview
“Satire genius.” - Jacinda Ardern, Labour Party Deputy Leader & MP for Mt Albert

“Make sure you head along if you can. It’s hilarious!” - Metiria Turei, Green Party Co-Leader & MP

“It is the kind of political satire we desperately need and I was happy to have the piss taken out of me!” - Grant Robertson, Labour MP for Wellington Central

White Man Behind A Desk, described by the Sunday Star Times as the ‘kiwi John Oliver’ (a phrase he will never shake for the rest of his life) is performing live in a return season at Circa. Leaving the safety of TVNZ OnDemand and YouTube, Robbie Nicol will rant, frolic, sing, dance, and welcome some of the big names in politics for a variety show of epic proportions.

Frankly, it’s your duty as a citizen of Aotearoa to be there, ready to laugh at the unending circus of absurdity that is New Zealand.


Duration: 1 hour (no interval)
Contains adult language and satire.

Presented by: Good Times Company
