NZ International Comedy Festival 2010

Production Details

Winning is supposed to be a good thing, unless your an All Black at which point it’s expected. But for there to be a winner there generally needs to be a loser, sometimes both these roles can be fulfilled by the same person. that’s what happened to Cameron Pinchey Murray and thusly ‘I Won a T-Shirt, Once’ was spawned.
The show explores the world from the perspective and perception of award winning comedian Cameron Pinchey Murray (2004 Kiwi Comedy Idol, 2008 National Raw Comedy Competition winner). Described as ‘surreal and cerebral’ (Lumiere Reader) he uses his comedy to show that life isn’t as bad as it seems, but possibly not as good as one might hope.
After several years involved in the International comedy Festival with The Comedy Cure and years of experience as a stand up comedy performer this is Cameron’s debut solo show. For a night of perspective altering comedy, don’t miss ‘I Won a T-Shirt, Once’.

About perspective and perception

Review by Suzanne Edwards 28th Apr 2010

Cameron ‘Pinchey’ Murray, winner of the 2008 Raw Comedy Quest, reveals his views on life, his childhood and anything that remotely pops into his head in his 2010 Comedy Festival show.

His style is very dry and while the warm crowd encourages, and shrieks in places, his confidence appears to slip and his manner, and his throat, gets ever dryer. Cameron’s low energy levels make it hard for the audience to really get behind it.

However, his material is good. Squirrels and allergies are a highlight, as is the comparison between woman, men and computers. Crowd participation is encouraged (there are t-shirts to be won) and teenage angst is offered as the bonding mechanism.

In a show about perspective and perception the audience can always take something away with them.
