Loveable hot mess and award-winning comedian Rhian Wood-Hill takes a lot of gambles. Sometimes he knows what he’s doing! On stage and at the poker table Wood-Hill has charm, wit, and thorough analysis ensuring his success – although his career has not landed him in comedy without some wacky risks.
Rhian-vested is Wood-Hill’s brand new hour comedy special about his time as a professional poker player. Rhian’s 2018 North Island tour follows on from a season in New Zealand International Comedy Festival and Best Comedy win at Nelson Fringe Festival.
Wood-Hill’s incredible popular debut solo show may have delved deep into family drama but Rhian-vested raises the personal stakes even higher than before: A show that strips Rhian and his own decisions bare to show the highs and lows of living off casino cash on the Brisbane coast.
Pop a few chips on the table, Rhian is all in and has some tall tales to tell… but he isn’t bluffing.
Performance warning: May contain nudity.
