amie Bowen It Happened Then, Now

The return of the hilarious award-winning storyteller

Notorious* Proudly Presents

Jamie Bowen
It Happened Then, Now

His previous trilogy of shows gained him two Fred Award nominations and won him two NZ Comedy Guild Awards for Best Live show, and knowing Jamie’s form we’re expecting more to come.

With a story-telling style that shows his vulnerability, and invites the audience on a journey, this is more than a comedy club set. This is theatrical comedy at its finest.

Jamie witnessed a moment in time. A girl eating her sandwich, who was in her own little world amongst the cacophony of the café. A really fascinating moment occurred right then. A moment that Jamie will explore during this show.

"…a masterful performance by Bowen", NZ

He’s been on TV, 7Days, The Comedy Gala, AotearoHA. So you can trust he know what he’s doing, you’re in safe hands with this award-winning professional.

This is a show about life, the small moments we miss. Hilarious, heart, soul… and dick jokes. This is a show for that girl, and her sandwich.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
