Critics Review

Lord Sutch -'Jonny’s work here is the closest I’ve seen to a New Zealander matching Stephen Colbert. He manages to portray a character whose views are plausible, but skewers them and draws a lot of laughter from their absurdity...'open/close
Jonny is a guy with a bit of a cult following around Wellington. He looks like a throwback to the 1990s with his semi-grungy motif but he’s a funny fucker.

His show is the Delusionaries and it’s unlike any other show I’ve seen this festival. It’s a 1-man-3-act performance that is equal parts brilliant and baffling. Jonny as Jonny introduces us to the show and it’s clear that Jonny hates what’s popular. He is the 2010s version of a counterculture practitioner. He knows what’s what and he wants to share that with you, sometimes by forcefully cramming it down your throat.

He makes it clear what sort of comic he isn’t in the beginning by spelling out that he does not to topical satire. That’s not his bag and he’s unapologetic for it. He’s clearly got a very good brain, sometimes it can feel like he’s belittling us and some his responses to heckling may border on the nasty but he never loses the crowd.
