Ian at Auckland Fringe Festival

30 May, 2021

Ian's recent participation in the Auckland Fringe Festival's Criminal Minds event was recorded for posterity.


So if you've ever wondered what he looks and sounds like, haven't seen in him in so long that you've forgotten what he looks and sounds like or are just weird that way that you'd like to look at and hear him, here is the perfect answer.

Ian apologises for the first part, he'd forgotten he was supposed to do a reading and was looking for a suitable passage. Hey at least you know it was live!! Enjoy.
