Everyone knows the people of New Zealand love Cox and now they are getting their wish, even more Cox. Yayz. That’s right Chris Cox will be bringing his award winning, multi-5-star show Fatal Distraction to New Zealand as part of their brilliant New Zealand International Comedy Festival.
Comedy.co.nz bring you, Fatal Distraction the fifth brand new show from the multi award-winning, five star, sell-out, mind reader who can’t read minds, Chris Cox. He’s been on TV, toured the world and is somehow still getting away with it. Fatal Distraction has picked up a magical hat full of 5 star reviews and won the 2011 Venue Magazine award for best comedy show.
Chris will be doing things he shouldn’t be able to do with the fringe brochure, performing tricks nobody has ever done before, controlling coincidence, probing theories of fate and answering the FAQ: ‘Can you use this stuff on girls?’. Determined to deliver the most satisfying hour possible Chris will be handing control over to his audience by giving them the power to control his actions with their minds. Cox manages to mix a love based narrative with some of the most unique and incredible mind-reading effects ever seen on the stage.
