Strassman’s Hilarious Brand-New Show Touring NZ In March

Strassman’s Hilarious Brand-New Show Touring NZ In March 2017

“Teddy! Chuck! Put Down Your Iphones And Talk to Me”

"A truly remarkable performance that appears to defy reality" - Adelaide Advertiser

International comedy star, David Strassman’s brand new show, iTedE is an uproarious take on our technology-laden lives. The sharp-tongued Chuck Wood and loveable Ted E. Bare have been thrust into the world of social media, constantly on their iPads and iPhones, not interacting with the real world. With everyone connected to social media and the internet 24/7, will Strassman get them back under control?

Strassman’s iTedE introduces an amazing new technology that brings the world’s most advanced Puppetronics to the stage. In a world-first feat, Strassman simultaneously operates 5 characters in a hilarious never-before-done, 6-way conversation, using a handheld wireless remote control that sets new standards in ventriloquism.

Combined with cutting edge lighting and state-of-the-art production, Strassman and his well known puppet characters will bring mayhem and theatrics to a set designed by one of New York's most renowned stage designers, Luke Cantarella.

When Evening Shadows Fall is one of four works by Goldie included in a sale of Important and Rare Art at the International Art Centre in Parnell on November 28.

Mark Stocker: History Spurned - The Arrival Of Abel Tasman In New Zealand

On the face of it, Everhardus Koster's exceptional genre painting The Arrival of Abel Tasman in New Zealand should have immense appeal. It cannot find a buyer, however, not because of any aesthetic defects, but because of its subject matter and the fate of the Māori it depicts. More
