Time
7/30
Price
$15
After fleeing Scotland, Ryan McGhee plonked his fabulous gay ass in Sydney. This would be his new home. Anything was possible!
Within a few years Ryan was blessed with an amazing marriage. The divorce came a few months later. Determined not to be left on the shelf, Ryan tried every tactic from speed dating to matchmakers – nothing was working. It was time for a new chapter in New Zealand – surely it couldn’t be that different from Australia or Scotland…?
Join Ryan to hear about his (mis)adventures in Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as some “highlights” from his (still) ongoing search for love.
Reviews:
“A strong performer with a likeable persona and bubbly energy…McGhee leaves me in stitches. This show strikes me as a Netflix special cutting its teeth” – Art Murmurs
“Offers plenty of whimsical insights and good laughs” – Theatreview
“The best example of what Fringe festival is all about…an hour of quality stand-up comedy and a great hour’s entertainment…hilariously smutty gay jokes and a disarming ability to tell a great story” – Regional News
Awards:
Winner of “Best Newcomer, Lower North Island” at the NZ Comedy Guild Awards 2022
Nominated for “Best Newcomer” at the Wellington Comedy Awards 2022
Ryan will be joined by local comedy legend, Karen Leslie.
Life after 50 has taken a turn for the surreal and Karen Leslie, the self styled “Queen of Uncool”, pokes it with a sharp wit. She may also dance a little, which is always worth a laugh.

Co-winner of the HB 2019 Raw Comedy heats, she is regular support for touring acts; runs the Open Mic Comedy at The Cabana and Peak Comedy at Peak House. Venue MC for SpaceShip, Fringe in the ‘Stings 2021. Solo Show, SAFe Arts Festival 2022.
