Comedy Aotearoa New Zealand


More Info

Welcome to a show that is a love letter to clubbing and an exploration of grief. Doesn’t sound super funny, but it is.

Join multi-award-winning comedian and theatre maker Barnie Duncan as he burrows into the specific freedom a dancefloor at 3am can bring and tries to figure out if he is avoiding, or dealing with, the loss of a loved one.

Made in the weeks following the death of a parent, Bunny is an hour of physical, musical and explorative comedy for fans of kooky characters and absurdist takes on the world. Speaking of which, a cleverly programmed scrolling LED sign hangs above the performer gradually becoming a second character, commenting on his actions with a poignant omnipotence.

A fun ride filled with nightclubs, bass guitars and an original soundtrack by legendary House music DJ and producer Dick ‘Magik’ Johnson, Bunny will trigger the release of endorphins throughout your body and improve your overall sense of well-being. Or at least make you laugh!

  • 'Hilarious and heartbreaking in equal measure, Bunny proves why Barnie is bound for future award glory. Youll struggle to stop laughing.

    NZ Herald

    'Bunny is powerful and it is human and it is bloody funny – a truly fantastic and unforgettable show.
