A Complete Idiot's Guide to New Zealand

In this insider’s guide to his eccentric homeland, award-winning comedian Sully O’Sullivan answers all the questions about New Zealand you didn’t know to ask in the first place….

Like why did we almost change our national flag to a drawing of a bird with lasers for eyes?

Is Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu really the longest place-name in the world? Or did my cat just walk across my keyboard?

And where actually is New Zealand?.... Given we keep getting left off maps.

Find out the answers to these questions and more, all wrapped in an hour of 'Quintessentially Kiwi comedy' (NZ Herald).

A Complete Idiot's Guide to New Zealand: 5*****

Sully O’Sullivan a Kiwi from Wellington presents his outrageously funny and patriotic show with obvious pride and passion for his home country and attempts to dispel some myths about New Zealand.

He puts New Zealand on the map unlike some publications he presents to the audience with the use of a visible screen behind the stage.
Continuing with the geographic location, he educates the audience in terms of New Zealand’s proximity to their neighbours Australia and presents some interesting facts and comparisons that surprised most.

After highlighting some things about the country that most people know about, for example the All blacks rugby team, doing the world famous Haka and of course sheep, he enlightened the audience into other sports, team nicknames, wildlife, the proposed new national flag and other not so well known customs all to everyone’s amusement.

Throughout the delivery of his performance, Sully’s passion and enthusiasm shines through while maintaining an infectious personality of factual comedy. So regardless if you like Marmite or not, you will love this show whether you have been to New Zealand or not!
