Eamonn Marra in ‘Man on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown’

Monday 5th – Thursday 8th May 2014
8 45pm
Puppies (cnr Vivian and Tory St)
Koha (bookings from eamonnmarra+comedy@gmail.com)

Man on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown was conceived one night at 4am during a very creative panic attack. Named after a song from the influential Flying Nun band The 3Ds, Man on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown investigates anxiety and its effects on everyday life for people. How it can destroy, create or sustain friendships; get you addicted to the internet; and make you ask all the right questions: What is wrong with this world? What is wrong with me? The answers are lots and nothing. This will be super inspirational.

Man on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown follows thematically from Eamonn Marra’s 2014 New Zealand Fringe Festival comedic monologue Respite. It deals with Eamonn’s personal experience with anxiety and depression, but more importantly, his recovery, how he deals with it, how it influences the way he thinks, acts and creates and how we shouldn’t have to be ashamed of mental illness as a part of our lives. This show is self-produced, and follows a DIY aesthetic and philosophy that are vital to Eamonn’s outlook and creativity.

Eamonn Marra is a comedian and writer living in Wellington. He has performed his solo show Eamonn Marra/Everything Else in Wellington and Christchurch. He appeared in We Just Want People to Like Us with Alice May Connolly, and opened for veteran comedian Raybon Kan, in the 2013 New Zealand International Comedy Festival. He won Standout Comedian/Most Original in the 2013 Wellington Comedy Awards and was Highly Commended in the Best Newcomer Category in the 2014 New Zealand Fringe Festival awards for his sold out season of his comedic monologue ‘Respite’. He is 24 years old and is in his sixth year of his undergraduate degree.

This will be his first solo show in the New Zealand International Comedy Fest.
