Hot Diva has many fans  

Alexander Sparrow: Narcissistic Diva, Alexander Sparrow's solo stand-up comedy show, premieres at The Fringe Bar on February 22nd as part of the New Zealand Fringe Festival. New Zealand's self-titled sexiest comedian; Sparrow has performed at the Globe Theatre in London as part of SGCNZ YSC 2011. Sparrow said, “Expect an extravaganza. Narcissistic Diva is your chance to say I saw Alexander Sparrow before he was famous”.

Adrian Sparrow, Sparrow's father, says of the comedian, ". . . you're so pleased with yourself it's almost comical . . ." – and it's not hard to see why, when other comedy acts are calling him "NZ's Orlando Bloom" (Adam Wright, Raw Comedy Quest finalist 2012).

More about comedian, Alexander Sparrow:
Alexander Sparrow has been a comedian for a year and gigs regularly throughout Wellington. Sparrow is a writer, artist, director and dancer – some of these will be part of his act in Alexander Sparrow: Narcissistic Diva.

Sparrow is directly involved with three shows in next year's Fringe Festival. He will perform in three shows in the New Zealand International Comedy Festival.
