Australia's MOST WANTED comedian Chopper is back in NZ

MEDIA RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 16, 2012

AUSTRALIA’S- ‘MOST WANTED’-COMEDIAN BACK IN NEW TOUR

The (s)Hitlist, starring Heath Franklin’s Chopper

Australia's Most Wanted comedian Chopper is fizzing at the bumhole to be back on road, and this time, he's brought a big pad of paper with your name on it.

Some people have a shopping list. Some have a To-Do list. Chopper has a Shitlist. It's like Santa's naughty and nice list; but with more sack, and no one is getting toys.

Restaurant serves your dinner cold. Put it on the Shitlist! The word ‘chillax’. Shitlist! Friend stabbed you. Shitlist! Just saw a romantic comedy you didn’t like... well maybe put yourself on the Shitlist for that one, what did you expect?

Finding fame on Network Ten’s The Ronnie Johns Half Hour, Logie and ARIA award nominated comedian Heath Franklin has built a reputation around the world as one of Australia’s funniest comics. As Chopper, his YouTube hits rank in the millions. He’s performed to over 150,000 people, released two live DVDs, and toured the world.

In 2012, audiences witnessed the debut of Franklin’s new characters Matt Preston and Bear Grylls, and sold out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. Now, he dusts of the mo’, dons the sunnies and leaves no stone unstabbed in his brand new show, The (s)Hitlist.

From the Ten Commandments to the Top 40 charts, history is littered with lists, but nobody's done a list like Chopper because sometimes when you get angry, you have to get organised.

Think of it as like a bucket list for things that can get f**ked. Everybody has a shitlist. As Chopper tours the country, every night in every city a new Shitlist will be created and posted online. So, put it on your To Do list, just above laughing your ass off.

Easily the best list since Schindler's.

right’ moments’ – Chortle

Howard Davis: Charlotte Yates' Mansfield Project

Katherine Mansfield's vapid verses are of even less interest than her over-rated short stories, but Yates has risen to the challenge of producing a fascinating compilation album by a variety of musicians to accompany her poetry. More>>

Howard Davis: Dazed & Confused by Beats

Beats is both a coming-of-age tale and a romantic movie about endings, set to a nostalgic backdrop of the disappearing tail of the UK's illegal rave scene. More>>

Howard Davis: And The Oscar Goes To … Parasite

For its deliciously dark wit and genre-bending ingenuity, Bong Joon-ho's latest movie has just won four out of a potential six Academy Awards, including Best Screenplay and Director. Only ten foreign-language films have previously been nominated for Best Picture and none have won before. More>>


Howard Davis: 1917's 1,000 Yard Stare

Sam Mendes has created a terrible and barbarous trek, one that we appreciate all the more for being catapulted right into the midst of this ear-splitting melee from the film's opening sequence. More>>
