Who is Jim Brown - and what is his show about?


Jim Brown - A Legend In His Own Bathwater

Last year's bridesmaid bounces back!
 
Jim Brown's defeat in the 2008 Billy T Award has proven to be the catalyst for the global stock market crash, the downfall of George W Bush and the decline of the Australian cricket team.

Since which he has been on one triumphant, if slightly delusional ride which has seen him embrace and conquer Microsoft Office, Tantric Sex and Facebook while delivering cactuses in a very different economic climate; a heady cocktail for which he has been granted full New Zealand citizenship.

The New Zealand International Comedy Festival has been the constant thread in Jim's life since the day he arrived in 2005,when within 3 hours of landing he headed downtown to take in a show during that year's festival. This  planted a big enough seed for him to start stand up comedy in 2006 when he booked himself two nights running at The  Classic Comedy Club, largely on the old theory that if you "fall off the horse you should het straight back on". Within three months, and having ditched the horse entirely, he reached the final of the Raw Comedy Quest and from there won Nest Newcomer at the 2006 New Zealand Comedy Guild Awards.

In 2008, his debut solo show ' A Woven Hour' was nominated for the Billy T Award and he appeared on TV3's Billy T Awards show. Now Jim Brown returns with another Billy T Award nominated show " A Legend In His Own Bathwater' which he wants to share with you  for five nights at The Fringe Bar in Wellington from May 12th to the 16th and back for a second successive year  for six nights at The Classic Studio in Auckland from 18th May to the 23rd
