One of New Zealand’s best joke writers is back behind the wheel with Daddy Short-Legs, a new hour of stand-up about the colossal life revelations that take place in the shittiest cars.
Eli is almost old enough to be a “daddy”, but his father is about to steal some of his thunder.
Daddy Short-Legs was crowned the winner of the 2021 Fred Award, honouring the best show at the annual New Zealand International Comedy Festival; Eli is also a host of The Edge Breakfast and the former Head Writer of Have You Been Paying Attention? He’s recently returned from performing the show at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe.
Eli Matthewson's set is full of trademark energetic wit, bold punchlines, and hilarious observations about life as a gay millennial in New Zealand.
