2016 Billy T Award Winner, David Correos has developed an international reputation for delivering full noise, powerful, messy comedy that defies genre and labels. It’s a maelstrom of comedy that has seen him get five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe. Of course, you can also expect body paint, electrical tape, potentially a bread knife and sometimes cinnamon. This is a stand-up comedy show that is spectacle and jokes, and 100% Correos. There is emotion, personal danger, and sweat. So much sweat. It's a comedian putting his body on the line to make people laugh, and boy he does it well. This year’s show has already required discussions around extra power supply, and a special risk assessment. What you’ve seen David doing on TV shows like AotearoHA and 7Days, doesn’t prepare you for the energy and boundary-pushing of his live shows. A comic on the edge of sanity and reason, and all the funnier for it. "I don’t believe there’s anything Correos wouldn’t do for the sake of entertainment." – theatrescenes.co.nz "Seems to only have to stand there to get the laughs." - theatreview.org Koha entry.
