WMBADx: Idea Worth Spreading

  • Created by Robbie Nicol
  • 27 - 29 Sep
  • Hutton Theatre
  • Dunedin
  • Comedy

Robbie Nicol, also known as White Man Behind a Desk and described by the Sunday Star Times as the Kiwi John Oliver, has abandoned his comedy web series on Facebook, YouTube and TVNZ On Demand to become an extremely serious lecturer. Unfortunately, people keep laughing.

Winner of Best Newcomer at the 2017 New Zealand International Comedy Festival, and described as a “satire genius” by Jacinda Ardern, Robbie Nicol has finally realised that comedy is evil.

Having just finished a sell-out season in Wellington, WMBADx: Idea Worth Spreading is the conference we need in the current comedy climate: one hour to convince you that politics and comedy should never mix again. It would be the world’s strangest TED Talk, if only it had been accepted into TED.

WMBADx has been described as a unique and spectacular theatrical comedy experience, but we invite you to please take it seriously.

WMBADx is a part of Arts Festival Dunedin 2018
