Scott Blanks

He sold out his debut season in NZ at the 2019 Fest with his hit show 'The InternationAL' so we have got Alistair back in 2020 with his brand new show, 'Manstrong', a show in which a not terribly manly man tries to work out how to raise a man to be the best man he can be in a world ruled by strong men. They seem to be doing a terrible job. Can he do any better?

Alistair Barrie has been one of the top headliners on the international comedy circuit for almost two decades. A BBC radio and TV regular, he is a member of the highly regarded ‘Cutting Edge’ team at London’s world famous Comedy Store. He has performed in over 40 countries including America, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong, India and throughout Europe and the Middle East. He has twice been nominated for best show at The Edinburgh Festival.

"A no frills master of his craft" - The Scotsman

"His show is a delight" - The Daily Review (AUS)

"A topically on-point but varied, very funny hour" -

"Sharp as a guillotine blade" - Cape Town Argus

"Alistair Barrie was a standout for me - sharp, intelligent and astute" - mac+mae (NZ)

"The audience was in stitches right the way through. I’m not usually a laugh out loud kind of person but I left with sore cheeks and a bit more optimism than I arrived with" The Speakeasy (NZ)
