The cat is out of the closet, New Zealand’s beloved sissy Chris Parker (The Breaker Upperers, Funny Girls, 7 Days) is mincing his way down to Christchurch with his award-winning hour Camp Binch, fresh from its run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. It's going to be blokes, beers and banter (gays, rosé and deeply personal/hilarious anecdotes about trying to fit in with all the straight bros).
From an alarming obsession with Anne Frank in primary school and a sexual awakening with Sarah Jessica Parker to why single sex boys' schools need to end immediately, it’s just going to be an hour of classic Kiwi bloke humour.
From his regular appearances on New Zealand Comedy Shows Jono and Ben, Funny Girls, 7 Days and The Great Kiwi Bake Off - An Extra Slice, Chris has made a huge impact on New Zealand's comedy and television industry.
With his vibrant storytelling, quick improv skills and giant hands, Chris promises to deliver an entertaining hour offering an hilarious insight of growing up as a closeted gay ballet boy in a conservative rugby-loving New Zealand.
Even the straight reviewer loved it!
'While in no way similar to my experiences growing up, so much of what Chris Parker shared resonated, and also unexpectedly inspired me.' - The Speakeasy (NZ)
'For artists, for geeks, for gays, for whoever. A truly cathartic hour of comedy that inspires empathy as well as laughs.' - Theatrescenes (NZ)
OPEN HOUSE FESTIVAL
Camp Binch is part of the Open House Festival, a very special series of events featuring a generous heaping of comedy, a splash of music and a sprinkle of drama.
