James Roque solo comedy - last two nights
The show has received a brilliant review:
If you could write a letter to your 8-year-old self, what would you write? It’s a question many people have asked themselves, and it’s the premise of comedian James Roque’s wittily titled 2014 International Comedy Festival solo show, Roque to Self. From his early days in the Philippines and introduction to New Zealand spreads, to the complexities of prejudice and the opposite sex, Roque examines his past fifteen years and narrows his letter down to a few titbits on how his younger self could potentially get through them.
