Description

It's been 10 years since Eli was made Head Environment Prefect at high school. It's hard to believe he still hasn't saved the world. In fact he's starting to worry he's made it worse. When everything in the world seems terrible, can one Inconvenient Poof make a difference? 'Filled with topical humour, hilarious anecdotes and huge laughs' ***** (FreshAir.org.uk, Edinburgh 2018). 'Leaves a lot of other comedians wallowing in the past... deserves to be massive' ***** (ShortCom.co.uk). 'Nails every punchline' ***** (New Zealand Herald).

This is straightforward standup comedy done well. There's a loose theme of environmental awareness, but it touches on a range of other current issues without being preachy. Some dark/slightly shocking jokes, some really funny observations. Eli is a slick and engaging performer and his show is worth seeing.

An hour long comedy show packed with light hearted humour and a political kick that Matthewson executes with a confident air of professionalism, An Inconvenient Poof is sure to make you smile. If there's anything you take from this show: be more like the dinosaurs.
