Basement Theatre is Auckland’s culture-defining powerhouse - home to an artistic mixtape of theatre makers, dancers, visual artists, poets, musicians, comedians and everyone in between.
Nominated for this year’s NZ Intl. Comedy Festival Fred Award for Best Show, and smashing it on TVNZ’s Taskmaster, David Correos’ weird and wonderful show is back for another round at Basement.
David has been finding his comedy voice in the only way he knows how. He takes a bit of everything, puts it all in the pot, and then throws it on the ceiling to see what drips down. Whatever is left is pure, unadulterated, Correos. Like a Jackson Pollock of comedy, his expression is abstract and doesn't mind splattering ideas – or cat food – around the room. Joyful, random, delightful, just what you want from a twenty-something-Filipino-comedian that keeps you guessing about what he'll come up with next.
