Get To The Chopper
Heath Franklin’s comedic impersonation of notorious real-life Australian gangster Mark “Chopper” Read has been a regular feature on the comedy stage and on TV screens on both sides of the Tasman for a decade now. Now he’s thrown a grab-bag of his best bits – material that encompasses everything from early appearances on The Ronnie Johns Half Hour to excerpts from stage shows such as Anzakistan and lesser-known internet hits – together in what he describes as a “comedy Frankenstein”: his new show All Killer. With Christchurch hosting the only New Zealand show of this career highlights package, local audiences have a great chance to catch the cream of the crop from a solid decade of touring the tough-love larrikin who’s been described as “Australia’s finest comedy character” (The Sunday Mail), experiencing “the most A-Grade gear that Chopper has to offer”.
