Loveable hot mess and award-winning comedian Rhian Wood-Hill takes a lot of gambles. Sometimes he knows what he’s doing! On stage and at the poker table Wood-Hill has charm, wit, and thorough analysis ensuring his success – although his career has not landed him in comedy without some wacky risks. Rhian-vested is Wood-Hill’s brand new hour comedy special about his time as a professional poker player, which debuted at New Zealand International Comedy Festival this year and won BEST COMEDY at Nelson Fringe Festival. The South Island tour follows on from an August run on cruise ships. Wood-Hill’s incredibly popular debut solo show, How I Met My Father, was one of Ghost Light's very first and delved deep into family drama. Rhian-vested now raises the personal stakes even higher than before: A show that strips Rhian and his own decisions bare to show the highs and lows of living off casino cash on the Brisbane coast. Pop a few chips on the table, Rhian is all in and has some tall tales to tell… but he isn’t bluffing.
