2014 Edinburgh Fringe

Rhys Mathewson - Hombre Lobo

  • Comedy (60 minutes)
Rhys Mathewson - Hombre Lobo. Rhys Mathewson

Fresh from straight up killing it on the New Zealand comedy circuit, Rhys Mathewson presents a brand new show about transformation, possibly. That might change... The only thing that's not changing is the fact that things are changing, which makes Rhys wonder when all of these things are going to stay the same for a change. Hombre Lobo is Spanish for werewolf. The show is completely in English. Sorry, Spaniards. 'Mathewson is a name that's likely to stick' (ThreeWeeks). 'This ferociously talented young comic's got them eating out of his hands' (TVNZ).

More details

Rhys was written into Kiwi comedy history at the 2010 New Zealand International Comedy Festival, when he became the youngest ever recipient of the highly coveted Billy T Award for his show Rhyspect, at only 19 years of age. Now a UK resident, Rhys has grabbed the attention of Time Out and supported Pete Firman and The Boy With Tape on His Face on tour.

Hombre Lobo is a show about transformation and the duality of man as expressed through the metaphor of the werewolf... possibly.

That might change.

Last year before the Edinburgh Festival Rhys broke up with his long term love and found that's he's not a big fan of change. In trying this year to find humour in his heartbreak, Rhys finds that the only thing that's not changing is the fact that things are changing, which makes Rhys wonder when all of these things are going to stay the same for a change?

This year Rhys has appeared on Radio 4 Extra Stands Up (Radio 4 Extra), 50 Funniest Moments of 2013 (Channel 4) and 50 Greatest Action Movies (Channel 5) as well becoming a regular on Best Bits (New Zealand).
