New Zealand's beloved sissy Chris Parker (as seen in Netflix's The Breaker Upperers) is mincing his way over to Edinburgh with his award-winning Camp Binch. Winner of Best Show at NZ International Comedy Fest 2018, Camp Binch delivers a hilarious and cathartic retelling of growing up gay in conservative New Zealand. 'He's the one to watch that you're probably already watching!' (GayExpress.co.nz). 'Leaves you inspired to make a difference' (New Zealand Herald). Writer and star of New Zealand's 7 Days, Jono and Ben, and Funny Girls.
A high-energy show from Chris Parker on growing up gay in rugby-revering New Zealand, finding sanctuary in the school drama club and ensuring the next generation find it too. It's a warm-hearted, very funny hour topped and tailed with a show tune and a brilliant dialogue with his former headmaster. The photos from Chris' childhood are an absolute joy too.
