James Nokise - Talk a Big Game

  • The Common Room 227 Heretaunga Street East Hastings, Hawke's Bay, 4122 New Zealand (map)

Fresh back from 5 Star reviews and sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, James Nokise returns to Hastings. 

James Nokise has spent the last 10 years focusing on biting political satire, then Brexit happened, then Trumpocalypse happened. So this year it's jokes on sports, New Zealand's favourite pastime! If John Key can retire from politics, then so can James.

From Cairn's cricket controversies, to running against Nick Willis, to stealing Valerie Adam's shoes. He’ll theorise as to why Steven Adams is the end of the All Blacks; why he'd rather take on Manu Vatuvai than Maria Tutaia; and why Richie McCaw may be Jesus. He’s talking World Cups, World Champions, but no world events.

May contain traces of politics.
