While we wait for Chris to turn up to the wedding the show goes on, Malcolm decides that Chris must want him to get better acquainted with the wedding guests and proceeds to tell us a whole lot about himself. From his experiences with the ringleaders at Scouts to his relationship with his family, the stories are surprising and brutally honest. As he justifies his opinions through his experiences, we laugh along and we see the gifted joke crafter that has seen him be picked as a 2016 Billy T nominee.
Malcolm’s comedy has a seemingly youthful innocence, with a dirty underbelly of humour that hits from nowhere. It’s an innocence that looks at the truth of a situation and sees a brighter, more positive side, or to put it another way, it looks at the truth and completely ignores it.
I’d love to tell you all about the show and what happens, but I fear telling you any more than I have would ruin the surprise reveals, and there are plenty. From the brilliant about face ending that had me in stitches to the growing stress regarding Chris Warner’s absence that is evident on Malcolm’s face, this is a show that you simply must see. This is THE Wedding of the NZ International Comedy Festival 2016, and one that everyone who attended will definitely be talking about. Don’t miss out on the latest gossip and RSVP to your wedding invitation today!
James Malcolm’s show Marry Me Chris Warner is on at BATS Theatre from Tues 3 May to Sat 7 May at 7pm.
