Life Rocks, Rugby Rules

Throw away your hand bags boys, and put on your high heel shoes, they’re coming to town … Australia’s main man of comedy Peter Grose teams up with New Zealand’s own Big Boy Michael Jones.

Australian Peter Grose has over 20 years experience in comedy and has performed all over Australian as a head line act along with the Edinburgh and Adelaide festivals. He has also done extensive work in Los Angeles.

Michael Jones hails from Auckland’s west and typifies kiwi humour, taking the mickey out of ya mates. During his high school years Michael got 14% in an exam, he’s always been over achiever. However disappointed he wasn’t because 2 other guys got less than him. “At least I didn’t come last” was his reply when explaining his results to his parents.

Life rocks rugby rules is not a show that will make you giggle, a giggle is something you do when sitting on the toilet reading cosmo. This show is about having laughter and a real laugh comes from your gut which inter-reacts with your cosmic cycle.
