  • Show map

Wellington’s variety comedy favourite MR FUNGUS returns to the Newtown Festival ‘Buskers’ Stage’ for the 200th consecutive year!
“Why so many years in a row?” you may ask…

(1) Because he books the acts for the Buskers’ Stage

and

(2) because he ‘makes stuff up’… so no two shows are ever really the same…

Also you might notice he’s only doing the one spot on the Buskers’ Stage… mainly because he’s MCing the nearby Community Stage throughout the rest of the day…

Interactive visual and verbal comedy, juggling and cat-swinging, from one of Newtown’s eccentric residents…

Come and check out the latest outrage and nonsense from the capital’s comedy exponent MR FUNGUS – before he heads to Melbourne, where he’s been invited to play among other outstanding Australasian artists at the renowned Port fairy Folk Festival.

"Thrillingly Stupid…"
