Get on board with the Basement Christmas show – A Frickin Dangerous Space-mas

Basement Theatre is back with its annual Christmas Show and this year it’s written by sketch comedy trio, Pax Assadi, Jamaine Ross and James Roque aka Frickin Dangerous Bro.

Nothing says Christmas quite like the endless void of space…right? Taking an extra-terrestrial route for the show’s eleventh year, ‘A Frickin Dangerous Space-mas’ is an intergalactic calamity of part social commentary, part cosmic gag train featuring a bevy of Basement-bred talent and a rotational guest cast of some of New Zealand’s most famous faces (Jacinda Ardern is an alumna)!

Touting themselves as New Zealand’s brownest, cockiest and funniest sketch comedy trio (a title they claim as NZ’s only), Frickin Dangerous Bro’s work takes on social issues with a whole lot of straight-up silliness.

Basement Theatre Producer in Residence Alice Kirker says the Christmas Show promises a wildly entertaining ride for audiences as well as a much needed gift to the local arts scene that keeps on giving long after final curtain. This is the Basement’s annual fundraiser with all proceeds going towards funding artist development and cultivating more great Kiwi talent. Comedy, Christmas and creative development. What’s not to love?

A Frickin Dangerous Space-mas is on at Auckland’s Basement Theatre until the 20th December.
