‘Beauty and the Bro’ – Mel Parsons and James Nokise -- AOTNZ tour 2 Sep - 3 Oct 2014

Take an acclaimed folk singer and a celebrated Samoan/Welsh comic, and be rewarded with an evening of music and comedy like no other. Mel Parsons and James Nokise combine their considerable talents to bring you their intimate live cabaret show, ‘Beauty and the Bro’.

Nokise has returned from the UK stand-up comedy circuit to perform ‘Soso Gangsta’, his hilarious and slightly true take on New Zealand gang culture. Parsons will be presenting new work, plus a variety of songs from her first two albums – ranging from rollicking country numbers to heartfelt ballads, and accompanied by multi-instrumentalist, Gerry Paul (Grada, Tim O’Brien).

“Parsons has a voice that could work any night in Nashville, yet sounds somehow intrinsically New Zealand – and the songs are good, very good.” –Black Magazine

“Nokise is a fresh, cheeky and (a) remarkably astute voice in today's comedy climate.” -Nik Smythe, Theatreview
