Wellington comedy circuit favourite Fergus Aitken is bringing an adult only standup show to Fringe bar that will leave you in stitches.
True Stories is a fresh selection of observations, questions, adventures, fun facts and myths. Some of life's little mysteries will be expanded, explored and exploded!
With a stand-up comedy style based strongly in physical theatre and storytelling Fergus 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 . . . or my young daughter who came up and innocently handed her mum a poo . . .”
Twice, Fergus received standing ovations at a nudist festival in Te Marua... true and amusing!
Also known as his alter ego Mr Fungus, ‘New Zealand’s Loudest Mime’, Fergus is in regular nation wide demand as a stand-up comic, corporate presenter and physical theatre teacher.
So come along and tickle your funny bone with True Stories & Other Stuff That Probably Isn’t!

“This show was completely mad, in all the best ways... knicker wettingly funny... natural charm and ebullient energy, sending himself up, his hometown of Upper Hutt, taggers, boy racers, his high school teachers, Facebook, it doesn't really matter what he talks about, it is all funny. - Theatreview
