Boy Mestizo: The Return
James Roque’s smash-hit Boy Mestizo is back! A finalist for the Fred Award for Best NZ Show at the 2019 NZ International Comedy Festival, Roque brings his hour of 'too real' laughs back to Auckland for two shows only.
James always thought his hang-ups about being brown came from when he landed on Kiwi soil. Now he realises he may have accidentally checked-in some baggage back in the Philippines. Join him as he unpacks it all – who knows what will come out. But there will be karaoke.
James Roque is one of Aotearoa’s sharpest comics on the live stage and the TV, as seen in Jono and Ben, Funny Girls, Only in Aotearoa, Have You Been Paying Attention?, and 7 Days. He is also one third of Frickin Dangerous Bro, who released their TVNZ series Frickin Dangerous Bro… on the Road at the start of the year.
"Messy, engaging and my favourite show this festival" - Metro Magazine
"Bold and often unflinching" – ✮✮✮✮" - NZ Herald
“Skilled storytelling, deft banter, and disarming charm … We don’t normally “do” stars, but screw it – this rocked. Five stars.” - Peril Magazine
