Alexander Sparrow: How To Pick Up Women

How To Pick Up Women
New Zealand Fringe Festival 2014

How To Pick Up Women, a world class seminar on seduction, will be premiering as part of the 2014 New Zealand Fringe Festival and performed from 5-8 February at Fringe Bar, Allen Street. Alexander Sparrow - writer and comedian - will embody the minds of the world's five greatest pick up artists and guarantees the complete transformation from even the worst AFC (average frustrated chump), into a seduction guru.

Sparrow says, "These guys have been everywhere and done everyone. Whether you're a man or a woman after a laugh, or if you’re planning to sit at the back and take notes, you’re ready for action”. A comedian and writer on the Wellington circuit, Sparrow's show is going to be an orgy of energetic stand up comedy, theatre, and motivational speaking - perfect for a couple wanting a night out, or the lonely guy wanting a few tips. "Come alone, and leave for a threesome. Or a foursome. I can make that happen."

Less a seminar and more a writhing pit of sexual energy, this is going to be one hilarious show. Meet the forty year old ‘wallflower’, the one man magic show, the meathead and more. They may not look like experts, but they know what to do.

More about writer/performer, Alexander Sparrow:
Alexander Sparrow is a writer and comedian. He has performed in several shows in the New Zealand Fringe Festival and the New Zealand International Comedy Festival. As well as How To Pick Up Women, Sparrow will perform another one man show in the 2014 Fringe called de Sade, about the Marquis de Sade. Alexander also has a solo show coming up in 2014’s International Comedy Festival.
