Gamarjobat tour dates
Kiwi comedian with a good reputation in the comedy world. He has a unique style that deftly mixes gags with storytelling, and a dynamic onstage persona and the ability to improvise and roll with anything that's thrown his way. This makes his comedy sizzle with originality.

They sold out the Edinburgh Fringe for 3 weeks in a row and were winners of the Hackney Empire New Act Of The Year 2010.
