James Nokise – White Club

New Zealand’s most exclusive club

Ever started a club that no one could talk about, with Brad Pitt as your imaginary friend? No? Neither has James Nokise, however he does offer a show that invites you to laugh as he reminisces over some of NZ’s best cultural faux-pas’… From Destiny to Brash, NZ Idol to Brash, James takes the whitewash off some truly dirty kiwi fences…

Get ready to test your cringe reflexes – James Nokise is here to make you laugh at New Zealand’s most disasterous cultural blunders!

Welcome to the White Club, where only the best of New Zealand’s cultural bloopers can be brought to your attention by 2005 & 2006 ODDFELLOWS Billy T Nominee James Nokise.

Using a mixture of television and film material, as well as his own comedic musings, James Nokise presents a show that reminds audiences just how ridiculously funny New Zealand culture can be.

Having previously been in 2004’s Overstaying with Cori and James, and performing his first solo show Enter the Jandal in 2005, James has plenty of experience in making audiences laugh. Combine this with the perspective he gained on New Zealand while performing around the UK and it makes for a critically hilarious overview of Kiwi Culture.

A twenty-three year old with a promising future in comedy, James will bring audiences what the Kiwi icon Billy T James, always gave New Zealander’s – a really good, hard, but most of all – humorous look in the mirror.

“He struck up a great relationship with the audience and had a fairly wide range of material which kept us all entertained ****”-
