Australian comedian returns to New Zealand in May with new show Frenchy Unleashed

Frontier Comedy are thrilled to announce that multi-talented comedian, writer and internet sensation Frenchy is returning to New Zealand this May with his brand new stand-up show Frenchy Unleashed.

‘gasp-inducing, no holds barred...gloriously filthy and irreverent comedy.’ - Appetite For The Arts

‘Frenchy is a natural gift to the world, even if the world may be in shock for what it is about to receive.’ - FringeReview (UK)

Last in the country for sold out shows at 2016’s New Zealand Comedy Festival, followed by a seven city tour across New Zealand, Frenchy’s much-anticipated return kicks off at Auckland’s Q Theatre on Thursday 18 May, for the first of two New Zealand Comedy Festival shows; going on to perform in Nelson, Invercargill, Dunedin, Christchurch, Hamilton and New Plymouth before wrapping up at Wellington’s Opera House on Saturday 27 May.

With his charming, self-deprecating humour Frenchy has achieved critical acclaim and sold out seasons across Australia and the UK. In 2017, Frenchy’s back with a brand-new hour of inappropriate banter, Gumby-like moves and observational humour. Find out what his two million social media followers love about him - and prepare to be offended!

½ ‘like driving really really fast to a destination you've never been before because you've always been slightly too scared of what your mother thinks’ - The Music (AU)

‘A talented, born comedian.’ - Herald Sun (AU)

A prolific writer, Frenchy religiously writes and creates original content to upload to his Youtube channel weekly. In August 2015 Frenchy and his musical collaborator Zach Gervaise released their debut single Friendzone – which hit the iTunes Top 50 within 48 hours of its release, peaking at number 26 and overtaking popular artists like Sia and Drake along the way.

Frenchy’s 2016 collaboration with The Roundabout Crew’s Tom Armstrong saw the duo become one of five recipients of Google and Screen Australia’s Skip Ahead initiative which awards winners a share of $500,000 to help fund and produce original online content. The team’s narrative comedy web series The Australiana Hostel features an ensemble cast of YouTube personalities and premiered on YouTube on September 12.

Don’t miss your chance to see Frenchy unleashed upon New Zealand this May!
