In mid 2011, after four days of intense anxiety, Eamonn spent half a week in a Mental Health Respite Centre in Addington, a suburb in south Christchurch.

In an attempt to turn this experience into some sort of ‘coming of age’ moment, he wrote a short story about it, now another year on he has turned this short story into a monologue. Unfortunately this coming of age moment has no love interest, no wise mentor, no huge epiphany and he was five years too old to come of age.

Eamonn Marra is a comedian and writer living in Wellington. He has performed his solo show Eamonn Marra/ Everything Else in Wellington and Christchurch. He appeared in We Just Want People to Like Us with Alice May Connolly, and opened for veteran comedian Raybon Kan, in the 2013 New Zealand International Comedy Festival. He is 23 years old and is about to start his sixth year of his undergraduate degree.

Everything is sad and funny and nothing is anything else.
