Fifth Horseman presents

Jeremy Elwood - "Rock Plus Roll"

Multi award winning comedian Jeremy Elwood presents his brand new solo show, Rock Plus Roll.

In a year of upheavals, both natural and man made, one event in particular turned Jeremy’s world upside down. On November 19th, 2005, he celebrated his 30th birthday. This is the show that follows.

An exploration of all the things we fail to achieve, all the things we grow up trying to grow out of, all the things we pretend we no longer like to do: Rock Plus Roll is all these with perhaps a touch of an impending mid-life crisis. Oh, and there’s music.

Jeremy Elwood has performed world wide, with particular highlights including sell-out performances in the UK, Singapore, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and at home in New Zealand, where he has been nominated for and/or won every major comedy award, including the NZ Comedy Guild Award for Best Male Comedian, the Wellington Comedy Award for “Best Touring Comedian” and the inaugural NZ “So U Think UR Funny” in 2005.

Rock Plus Roll will premiere in seasons at the 2006 Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festivals, before returning to New Zealand. Later in 2006, Elwood is booked to perform at Jongleurs Comedy Clubs in the U.K. Catch him while you can.

“Jeremy likes to share his experience and finds it difficult to sit quietly and take turns in circle time”
