Barnie Duncan


new zealander flag small256

Barnie Duncan - the brain behind Juan Vesuvius, and half of the brains behind last year's Adelaide Fringe Best Comedy Award winning show Different Party, returns to Auckland with a brand-new show. 

Part stand-up comedy, part surreal theatre, Tap Head explores the life of a lonely tap who works in a public toilet, a tap who also frequents open mic nights to test out his jokes. Spliced together with actual stand-up from non-tap Barnie Juancan, Tap Head celebrates anthropomorphism and amateur comedy nights with gleeful absurdity. 

Directed by Katy Maudlin
Sound Design by Daniel Nixon

"Witty as it is commanding, amusing as it is poignant; Barnie Duncan exquisitely takes comedy to a whole other level. Tap Head is not only out of the box, it is completely unmissable" - NZ Entertainment Podcast

"Duncan has created a magical experience" - Squirrel Comedy, AUS

"Deserving of comedy superstar status" - Broadway Baby, UK
