Fergus Aitken

Wellington comedy favourite Fergus Aitken returns to Nelson and Takaka, with an adults-only standup comedy show that will leave you in stitches.

Fergus has achieved critical acclaim with his stand-up comedy shows, playing regularly at comedy clubs and events in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and beyond. Last year, he had Nelson and crowds roaring and he is looking forward to returning for more.

Recently he has been refreshing a selection of adventures, fun facts and myths. Some of life's little mysteries will be expanded and exploded! With a stand-up comedy style based strongly in physical theatre and storytelling, he spins a yarn – and some of it’s even true.

“I love observational comedy”, says Aitken, “Some of the funniest things I’ve ever heard are true... like the actor who took herbal viagra which didn’t work until the next day just as he went for his important TV audition... or the deer hunters whose bicycles were stolen by recently released, trained circus bears...”

In a varied comedy career spanning three decades and 15 countries, he has experienced many bizarre encounters with the truth… including several standing ovations at a nudist festival. This year’s show features new material about the challenges of getting along with young people and old people.

Come out and tickle your funny bone with an evening of hilarity, featuring Fergus Aitken!
