Growing up, my preacherman father made me draw Bible stories. I don't remember the stories, but I draw great.

The 5 Star Edinburgh Fringe sell-out show, nominated for Amused Moose Best Show Award, from the NZ Comedy Guild Best international Comedian Award Nominee.

A modern day comedic and visual take on those Grimm's classics, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood. A reality tale for the 21st century. A children's fable for adults.

My previous shows had short jokes, and tall stories. I thought it was high time to combine these with my drawings. Especially since Rolf Harris left a gap in the market.

"Birdman's show is a triumph. Grimm Realities deals with coming to terms with his daughter growing up, with a mixture of comical perspectives and re-imagined fairy tales. Not so filthy that it's crass, but filthy and clever enough to warrant constant laughter from the audience." ***** Edinburgh Reporter

"Probably the most absorbing show I have seen. Completely spellbinding." **** Chortle

"Meditative but not mournful, he makes us feel part of his story. Hugely enjoyable and lots of ruddy good gags." **** Scotsman
