Austin Harrison (Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington)
Infamous private eye Magnus Steele investigates the crime of the century through interrogations, jazz, and beat poetry, but here’s the catch: all the victims, suspects, and witnesses are played by YOU! Come prepared for hilarity, bad accents, and to be a part of the show!
Austin Harrison’s Magnus Steele has been delighting audiences around Aotearoa since 2020 to critical acclaim. Nominated for Most Promising Emerging Artist at NZ Fringe 2020 and The Side-Splitter Comedy Award at the inaugural Whangarei Fringe Fest, Austin can’t wait to bring Magnus (finally, after two covid cancelled attempts) to Nelson Fringe!! Are you ready to solve crimes with comedy?
“The show is reminiscent of Brooklyn Nine Nine, if they let me join in from my sofa. In other words, it’s witty, unpredictable and wonderfully endearing and the jokes are pretty cool. Cool, cool, cool.” – Sara Hirsch, Art Murmurs
“Appropriately hatted” – Margaret Austin, Theatreview
“A Masterclass in crowd work” – Sara Hirsch, Art Murmur
