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: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.

Howard Davis: The Back of the Painting

Painting conservators are the forensic pathologists of the art world. While they cannot bring their subjects back to life, they do provide fascinating insights into the precise circumstances of a painting's creation, its material authenticity, and constructive methodology. More>>


Howard Davis: Black Panthers on the Prowl

A passionate and gripping political drama from Shaka King, this is an informative and instructive tale of human frailty that centers around the charismatic Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who was murdered at the age of twenty-one during a police raid. More>>

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>


Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>
