TransTasman duo will perform ‘Literally Anything’

TransTasman duo will perform ‘Literally Anything’ in New Zealand Fringe 2014

Brooks & Brown are a brand new transTasman duo who have no idea what their show is going to be about.

Christine Brooks from Wellington and Rik Brown from Melbourne had so much fun working together at the New Zealand Improvisation Festival in 2013 that they decided to make a whole show together.

The only problem is Brown lives in Melbourne and Brooks lives in Wellington so the usual preshow training will not be possible. Instead Brooks and Brown trust each other enough that they’re going to get up on stage in Fringe Festival with no script, no format and no preconceived ideas and perform ‘Literally Anything’.

“We will get on stage, look into each other’s eyes and start performing. It’s terrifying and exciting” says Brooks.

“This show will deliver 150% of your hopes multiplied by 250% of your dreams or Rik Brown will rip a hole in the space time continuum and kill Hitler. With Knitting Needles. Then he will knit each audience member a smart autumn cardigan” says Brown.

Rik Brown will be familiar to Wellington audiences from the New Zealand Improvisation Festival where he was the headlining special guest. Christine Brooks will be familiar to Wellington audiences because she lives here and is always lurking about.

Brooks & Brown in Literally Anything
Dates: 8pm, Tues 25 Feb Sat
1 Mar 2014
Venue: Gryphon Theatre
Tickets: Full $15 Concession $12 Group/Addict $10
Bookings: fringe.co.nz

“It's a tie between Christine Brooks' hilarious performances generally, and the Australian chap [Rik Brown] who did the final closing show on the Saturday night. That was the best improv show I've ever seen."
