LIKE SANDS THROUGH THE HOUR GLASS SO ARE THE DAYS OF THESE YOUNG RECKLESS LIVES'

Like sands through the hour glass, so are the days of our lives...well one boys life growing up in a not so typical upbringing. Kevin Connaway - is he misunderstood or just delusional or even psycho? YOU decide in this quirky, weird, completely off the kilter-mad, but hilariously FUNNY and CLEVER solo comedy show! He's back and he may not be black but his comedy is just as dark and hilariously funny. You won't have laughed as much in a long time!

KC Throne Myers is a new emerging comedy artist who has great wit and sarcasm that reaches across to all ages and ethnicities as his humour draws on 80's television and quotes, as well as high school high jinks that will have you in stitches.

KC is a graduate of the Pacific Institute of Performing Arts and has performed this solo to raucous success in 2011 at the Mangere Arts Centre and has been brought back by popular demand to be a part of the ‘Pacific Fringe' and ‘Auckland Fringe' 2013.

To kick start the evening there will be two Pacific Island solo comedy acts by two recent graduates Luse Su'a, giving adoption a new twist, and Darren Taniue, giving young and gay in Auckland a comic turn.

Auckland Fringe runs from 15 February to 10 March 2013. For more Auckland Fringe information go to www.aucklandfringe.co.nz
