Friday 14 June 2019 – Wrest Point Entertainment Centre
Award-winning US actor, writer and comedian Nick Offerman returns to Australia for the first time since 2016, with his brand new live show, ALL RISE.
All Rise is an evening of deliberative talking and light dance that will compel you to chuckle whilst enjoining you to brandish a better side of humanity than the one to which we have grown accustomed. Genuflection optional: in my church, you kneel as you please!
“My aim in this undertaking is to encourage my fellow Homo Sapiens to aim higher in life than the channels of consumerism would have us imagine,” said Offerman.
“It’s a proper revival suggesting the existence of a higher power in the land than commerce, one that will cause you to pop, lock and rejoice! Come on down and hear the good news that will make you go jingle-jangle in your juice box”
Offerman is an accomplished entertainer known for Parks and Recreation (2009), The Founder (2016) and Fargo (2014). His role as Ron Swanson in Parks and Recreation, earned him a Television Critics Association Award in the US for Individual Achievement in Comedy. He is also a two-time nominee for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. His first major television role since the end of Parks and Recreation was Karl Weathers in the acclaimed series Fargo, for which he also received a Critics’ Choice Television Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Movie/Miniseries.
