A highlight is when Aristeguieta deconstructs the English language, pointing out the absurdity of how prepositions (in/on/at) can be hilariously lost in translation. The vibrant Venezuelan members of the audience cheered in excitement (and frustration!)
As a comedian now based in Australia, a large portion of the show was dedicated to roasting Australian culture. Whether we like it or not, Kiwi and Ozzy culture is very similar; questionable national breakfast spreads, staunch male archetypes and all. His Australiasian roasts still work here but would be better accepted if he replaced his bits about ‘thongs’ with ‘jandals’ and ‘Vegemite’ with ‘Marmite.’
The Fourth Floor is a polished, professional stand up show bursting with spice. Aristeguieta blessed Wellington with only one show, but do catch him in Auckland at Q Theatre until the 18th May. You can book tickets to the Auckland season of The Fourth Floor here.
