Hairy Soul Man: The Comedy Soul Train Is Coming To NZ

Hairy Soul Man: The Comedy Soul Train Is Coming To New Zealand

Come on a sexual odyssey with Australian award winning musical comedian Kai Smythe as he explores the human condition through the power of soul music. Featuring an 7 piece band consisting of the best emerging soul musicians Australia and New Zealand has to offer, Hairy Soul Man will slowly undress your inhibitions and make sweet passionate love to your imagination. Join this comedy music extravaganza under the proscenium arch of the Auckland Town Hall from 15- 17 Mayand Wellington’s own Bodega 8-10 of May.

Hairy Soul Man will transcend the comedy genre to blow the clothes right off the audience using infectious grooves in a sexually explosive (think confetti canons) stage show. Ranging from serial killer love songs to the lament of the first world blues, the show will extract soul and blues music from its roots and inject it into the modern context.

Hairy Soul Man (Kai Smythe) has been creating and performing his own independent theatre, music and film projects and a graduate of the Victorian College of Arts. Smythe co-created In Search of Atlantis which toured nationally in 2010 picking up the Melbourne Cabaret Festival Award at Melbourne Fringe and nominated for Best Cabaret at the Adelaide Fringe. In 2011 he co-wrote Sexytime! a physical comedy based on the history of attraction. The show enjoyed a sell-out season at the 2011 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and critically acclaimed performances at the Adelaide Fringe & Edinburgh Fringe.

Heading up the 7-piece soul band will be Musical Director, James O’Brien. O’Brien is a Melbourne based composer and musician. Starting his career at the Conservatory of Music in Brisbane, he went on to co-create The Boat People, a four piece indie rock band. The Boat People toured nationally and internationally, receiving numerous awards and repeat airplay on Triple J.
