Awww yeah! This year Gish takes it to another level... basically it’s just an extra piece of stage to keep him high during the show. Your favourite songs and some new gear he has picked up off the streets. Easily NZ’s most iconic performer, Gish has a huge following in NZ and Aussie.

Come and see him before he comes to see you!

Critics Review

Due to the previous show running late we miss the start of Gish's late-nite standup show, arriving just in time for his first and most elaborate terrible pun, concerning the plaster cast conspicuously adorning his right forearm.

Rest assured though, he can still play acoustic guitar. Sporting his red poncho-blanket and tasseled skater pants, Gish (now going by the name ‘Oo Gish', perhaps in tacit response to Radar's adopted ‘Te'?) regales us with his trademark musical parodies, played with a pick made out of his community services card.

Reasoning it's in his cultural make-up to appropriate anything he sees fit, Gish happily mines (as in, that's mine now) the canons of musical artists as diverse as Supergroove, Joey Scarbury, Bananarama, Harry Belafonte, the Swingers, Billy Joel, Edwin Starr, the Cranberries, the Bangles, Elton John, Dave Dobbyn, the Prentenders… the list goes on.
