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

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
