Presentation is Everything : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Presentation is Everything



The antidote to every bland lecture, dull pitch and boring work presentation you’ve ever had to endure

See tickets below


Direct from Australia, Presentation is Everything is an hour of fast-paced stand-up comedy, visually complemented through the medium of Microsoft PowerPoint.

Written and performed by two of Melbourne’s fastest-rising and extravagantly overdressed comedians, Sweeney Preston and Ethan Cavanagh, this show is packed with slides full of images, news cut-outs, maps, animations and (you guessed it) graphs to punctuate their quick-witted stand-up.

After sell-out seasons at Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Fringe, and having become the youngest comics to be awarded a monthly residency at Melbourne's famous Comedy Republic, Sweeney and Ethan are touring New Zealand for the first time.

Armed with outfits they can’t afford and a .ppt file they can’t attach to an email, this is a show where presentation truly is everything.
