The Only Comedy Show That Guarantees to Save You

The Only Comedy Show That Guarantees to Save Your Family, Your Career And Your Very Soul…


Jonny Potts in The Delusionaries


Lives will be changed at this year’s NZ International Comedy Festival when three of the country’s self-professed gurus hit the stage in a new show by award nominated Wellingtonian Jonny Potts.

Parenting expert Alan Legtit will kick off this ‘seminar’ with his white-hot truths on family psychology. Raising a child will be a snap when this visionary imparts the inner workings of the ‘right way’ to parent.

“had me in stiches…TOO GOOD!” --Wotzon

Next up, soap star deluxe Richie Richardson will take the stage to solve the mysteries of acting, career enhancement, and generally getting noticed. Don’t let the downward spiral of his career fool you; he’s a true acting inspiration.

“Hilarious!” --Salient

And finally, with family and career paths sorted, the audience can look forward to ‘hipster heaven’ when Cool Youth Pastor rounds out the evening with instruction on the saving grace of JC.

“That’s his name? Just Cool Youth Pastor?” --various audience members

Jonny Potts is a comedian and actor who hit the comedy scene with a bang three years ago to much fanfare. He has written and performed in several comedy shows, among them three solos, which have all been nominated for awards including Best comedy show 2012 NZ Fringe Festival, Best Comedy Show 2013 NZ Fringe Festival, and Best Newcomer 2013 NZ International Comedy Festival.

Jonny is also the narrator of the popular podcast series The Witching Hours. The Delusionaries is his fourth solo show.
