The Scottish Kiwi
The hit show fresh from NZ & Dunedin Fringe Festivals
The Scottish Kiwi recently completed a sold out run at NZ Fringe, then went down a storm at Dunedin Fringe a few weeks later. The reviews from the critics speak for themselves:
“McGhee leaves me in stitches. This show strikes me as a Netflix special cutting its teeth” (Art Murmurs)
“An hour of quality stand-up comedy and a great hour‘s entertainment…McGhee has a disarming ability to tell a great story” (Regional News)
“Offers plenty of whimsical insights and good laughs” (Theatreview)
So what’s the show about?
After fleeing Scotland, Ryan McGhee plonked his fabulous gay ass in New Zealand 3 years ago.
Ryan thinks of himself as “born and fled” - while he’s fiercely patriotic as a Scotsman, he’d never bloody live there! Ryan will be sharing his take on the cultures of Scotland, Aotearoa, and the gay scene. Oh and his ongoing search for love…from apps to matchmakers to reality dating shows…it continues to be so bad you have to laugh!
Ryan recently won “Best Newcomer” at the NZ Comedy Guild Awards (2021).
Ryan will be joined by Taylor Ruddle. An introverted man-child who only leaves the sanctity of home in search of pizza or to perform stand-up comedy. He has a friendly, relaxed delivery, and performs a mix of storytelling, one liners, and satire.
Taylor was nominated for “Breakout Comedian, South Island” at the NZ Comedy Guild Awards (2021).
