ROB LLOYD in WHO, ME
07/05/2013 - 11/05/2013
DOCTOR WHO IS ABOUT TO FACE HIS GREATEST CHALLENGE: HIS NUMBER ONE FAN
After sell out seasons at the Melbourne and Adelaide Fringe Festivals, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival and a full house for Armageddon Expo 2011 (Australia’s Premier Science Fiction Convention) Rob Lloyd will be bringing his show of obsession and nerdiness to Auckland – opening on 7th May, 2013, and asking the BIG questions in WHO, ME.
Rob will be investigating whether Doctor Who (the television show) is guilty of inciting in him a debilitating obsession, or whether it has shaped him into a well-rounded, mentally-sound member of society. Since 1996 Rob Lloyd has dedicated himself to amassing as much Doctor Who knowledge, well as videos, DVDs, novels, audios, action figures and assorted paraphernalia as he can afford. With his replica Jon Pertwee era sonic screwdriver in hand and dressed in his 10th Doctor get up he is ready to jump head first into finding out how and why he got here!
Rob and Scott have been working together for the past 7 years and brought to life many comedies in that time. Whether on either sides of the stage as with Rob’s one man shows, or taking out the Adelaide Fringe Theatresports Award for 2012, their level of fun, frivolity and cheekiness has brought smiles to thousands of people.
