Award-winning Wellington comedian Rhian Wood-Hill had an epic
New Zealand tour of his debut show, How I Met My Father. The
comedy-storytelling hour special went from Whangarei to Dunedin and
earned Wood-Hill acclaim from critics and audiences alike; in both
city centres and small towns.
NOW, Rhian and the show are going even further: walking 500
miles along the coast of Australia from Queensland to New South
Wales. How I Met My Father is a show with legs and Wood-Hill plans
on stretching these as far as they can go for a classic Proclaimers
Money raised from donors will go towards keeping Rhian alive on
his journey this February. Food, water, and first aid supplies are
crucial to a walking tour of this distance in the Australian
summer. Flights are the project's first major expense but the
journey also requires ongoing costs to make sure it is safe.
A BIT ABOUT THE SHOW:
Rhian knew just a few things about his father growing up: He was a
criminal, he was charming, he was good looking, and Samoan. Being
raised in South Canterbury, Rhian didn't have many reference points
to his Samoan identity, and life experience suggests he lacks most
of his father's other qualities.
With a perfect balance of comedy and drama, wild anecdotes and
down-to- earth moments, How I Met My Father is both honest and
hilarious: An hour where you are invited to laugh wholeheartedly at
someone else's misfortune.
