NZ’s Brownest, Funniest and Cockiest Trio Tour Auckland

Media Release: for Immediate Release

NZ’s Brownest, Funniest and Cockiest Trio Tour Auckland

Frickin Dangerous Bro’s World Tour of Tāmaki Makaurau
James Roque, Jamaine Ross and Pax Assadi

Frickin Dangerous Bro are bringing their unique brand of live sketch comedy out to the people and touring Auckland suburbs from September 23 to October 21 with Frickin’ Dangerous Bro’s World Tour of Tāmaki Makaurau.

Made up of stand-up comedians Jamaine Ross, James Roque and Pax Assadi, Frickin Dangerous Bro have had 3 years of (mostly) sold out comedy festival shows, several (two) TV appearances, and a growing online following to refine their charming and hilarious sketch comedy that unleashes clever twists on social issues such as education, racism and gender.

Now, with the help of the Auckland Diversity Project Fund, Creative NZ and Foundation North, the self-declared “greatest sketch group of all time”, embark on their first ever, highly ambitious, World Tour… of Tāmaki Makaurau.
Individually and collectively, you may recognise these guys from shows such as; 2017 Flick Electric Co Comedy Gala, AotearoaHA Rising Stars, AotearoHA Driving Stories, 7 Days, Jono and Ben, Best Bits, Funny Girls and Brown Eye, and they are also hosts on the brand-new comedy series, Only In Aotearoa.

To me they are New Zealand’s version of Key & Peele. Their comedy takes on a stereotype and turns it on its head until you’re slapping your knee and silent laughing with 100 other people in the room – Tearaway

The comparison drawn between Key & Peele is accurate, these comedians create well-crafted characters who subvert stereotypes and lead the audience to greater self-awareness through realising how quickly they made assumptions in the first place.

These talented guys don’t stay still for long- James Roque hosts his own segment on Jono and Ben, and is co-founder of Proudly Asian Theatre, Pax Assadi has just released his solo comedy special Live At Q Theatre -as well as being a family man with two young daughters, and Jamaine Ross writes, directs and edits for a variety of television shows, all of this in between performing solo and group stand up shows around New Zealand.

So don't miss your opportunity to witness Frickin Dangerous Bro’s trademark unpredictability and the edgy and hyper-relevant social commentary that happens when a Fillipino, Iranian/Pakistani and Māori comedian join forces and perform some of their all-time favourite sketches, live in your hood.

Praise for Frickin Dangerous Bro:

“With gentle but pointed humour addressing race, gender and their own ethnic backgrounds, Ross, Roque and Assadi succeed in subverting the white boys club that often dominates New Zealand comedy.” – Metro

“It is hard not to fall for the lovable charm of Frickin’ Dangerous Bro who’s friendship and shared humour has created a homegrown delight.” – Keeping Up With NZ
