Vinyl Burns Variety Hour

MEDIA RELEASE: For Immediate Release

Hair of the Dog Productions and Kiwi Comedy Ltd. presents:

Vinyl Burns Variety Hour

An intimate hour with superstar celebrity lady slayer, the Reverend Dr. Vinyl Burns.

"...the seamless magic of your very own host the loveable, unflappable, king of kiwi comedy; Vinyl Burns." - Idealog Magazine

An irresistible mashup of subtle self-deprecating character comedy, sold with unexpectedly slick circus skill, slapstick personality and high altitude rockstar finesse.

Vinyl Burns reveals the secret burden of celebrity, charisma and good looks, as he offers a peek into his sideshow past, his chaotic present and his glorious Rock'N'Roll future… all while, pedalling his delicious brand of 70's romance... for the ladies.

They broke the mould, THEN they made Vinyl Burns.

Features physical and verbal comedy, circus, live music, some adult language.

Kim Potter is a performer, musician, comedian, writer, presenter, MC and gadget nerd. Kim's comedy character and alter ego, Vinyl Burns is far more prolific than he is.

Vinyl has produced an album spawning five music videos, several web series covering poker, sleep, sex therapy, cooking, rock concerts, dramatic film, chocolate milk and water safety. Vinyl writes an irregular blog, and produces an equally erratic "Vinyl Speaks" podcast and his weekly 1am - 3am radio show on Wellington's radioactive.fm
