Alex Williamson - SO WRONG, IT’S WRONG

Alex Williamson Bringing his new show SO WRONG, IT’S WRONG to New Zealand Comedy Festival this April.

Comedian, actor, online content creator and “one of the world’s most promising comedic talents” (Under The Gun, US) Alex Williamson (The Slot, Me and My Mates Vs The Zombie Apocalypse) will bring his latest stand-up show So Wrong, It’s Wrong to the New Zealand Comedy Festival.

Be prepared for Alex’s twisted outlook to shake your faith in humanity, before restoring it ever so slightly, then smashing it once again beyond repair in this one hour honesty session. The entertainingly controversial Alex will perform two shows at Rangatira Q Theatre on Friday 27 April and Saturday 28 April.

‘Modern comedy at its finest.’ - All About Entertainment, AU

Alex has proven to be a huge runaway hit with the YouTube generation, gathering 2.5 million followers and hundreds of millions of views across his social media platforms. He began performing stand up in 2007, going on to be a state finalist in triple j’s 2009 RAW Comedy competition. After a stint in radio, Alex relocated to Los Angeles where he performed duties for The Hot Hits Live From LA, gathering content from various A-List celebrities at red carpet events.

In 2012, Alex brought his various online characters, songs and stand-up comedy to life in a hilarious live stage solo show, Alex Williamson and Friends. This show and his subsequent live shows have sold out countless times at all the major Australian comedy festivals since 2012, and internationally at the Edinburgh Fringe from 2013. In 2015, Alex starred alongside Aussie comedy greats Jim Jefferies and Greg Fleet in zom-com Me and My Mates vs The Zombie Apocalypse.

‘Hilarious. Keen eye, wicked mind, razor-sharp tongue.’ - Herald Sun, AU

‘Williamson enters a whole new realm of comedy - if you’re not afraid of going to hell, go see Alex. If you laugh, it’s nothing a few Hail Mary’s can’t fix.’ - Lot’s Wife, AU

Alex Williamson is a global comedy sensation. Last year alone he performed two tours across New Zealand and Australia as well as sold out festival seasons across Australia and the UK. Don’t miss your chance to catch Alex Williamson and his latest live offering So Wrong, It’s Wrong in April 2018 at The New Zealand Comedy Festival.
