Brent McGuinness: One Night at the Bluenote

Brent McGuinness presents

One Night at the Bluenote

Affectionately referred to by his peers as the “itchy bum guy”, Brent Mcguinness has been performing on the Wellington comedy scene for five years and has managed within that time to hospitalise two people from laughter induced stomach cramps (or was that the free shellfish he gives out at all of his shows?).

He has wreaked havoc on the elderly and corrupted the young by performing in the secondary school comedy program. He has twice come regional runner up (which is still a valid placing god damn it) in the comedy festival competition “Raw” and last year wrote, produced , directed and performed in the Comedy Festival show “Sacrilegious”. The show sold out and received rave reviews (from his mum).

On the 29th of May Brent McGuinness will be showcasing his talents in a one night only, hour long extravaganza. So come and enjoy the dirtier side of religion, vegetarianism and an alternate view on the world as we know it. So come see one of Wellingtons best kept secrets for one intimate night of pure comedic genius. Hope to see you there.

(There will be no shellfish. I won’t make that mistake three times.)

Dates: Mon 29 May, 9pm
Venue: Bluenote Bar, 195 Cuba St, Wellington City
Tickets: Adults $10, Conc/Groups 10+ $8
Bookings: Door sales only
