THE ‘RUUFLESS' GUY IS BACK WITH INFORMATIONAL ‘CRACK'
Following up on his successful debut show ‘Ruufless', Samoa's most daring comic is back with a confession. He's addicted to information. “Its my crack. I'll read almost anything and everything that will tell me anything about everything. If that makes sense” he says “Apart from the Bible, I haven't read a fiction for about 10 years.” Fighting talk from the Ministers son, who admits his obsession is starting to get out of control. “Once, I bought a book for ten dollars called ‘Speed Cleaning'. It was filled with so many awesome tips and shortcuts that when the day comes that I actually want to clean my house; I'll know how to do it in the shortest time. Until then, Mum's doing a great job”
Opening in Wellington's Cavern Club on the 2nd of May before closing at Auckland's Q Theatre Vault on the 12th, Info-Crack Whore is a hilarious ramble through all the various informational ‘crack' Fasitua has exposed himself to. From the three thousand dollars he spent on a Quantum physics based, human transformation weekend, to the other three thousand dollars he spent learning about Whole Food medicine, to the time he fasted 7 days on water and then ate chocolate donuts that made himself thinner, Info-Crack Whore will make you laugh and you may even learn something new along the way.
Fasitua Amosa has been performing most of his adult life as an Actor. He trained at Unitec School of Performing and Screen Arts. He began doing stand up as a performance challenge and because acting work was “rather thin”. He was recently on the hugely successful TVNZ Web series “Auckland Daze” and is the current voice of Mitre 10.
