Comedy Battle: Alexander Sparrow v. Pat Goldsack
Who’s going to win, who’s going to lose? Sunday 8 January. 7pm. Only at O.B.E.
Alexander’s act is a fast-paced display of blistering one-liners, killer crowd work, and high energy stand-up. This is insult comedy at its finest. Pat is NZ's hippest, swingers-club owning nana - hitting the stage filled to the brim with innuendo, sex advice, mentorship, and a healthy dose of the crass.
