James Roque: Badong

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2022

A favourite on the New Zealand comedy scene for the last 10 years, Kiwi-Filipino James Roque makes his debut at the Edinburgh Fringe. His entire life, James' family have referred to him by his traditional baby nickname – Badong. Now that Badong has turned 30, he's asking – is it finally time to retire the name? This is a show about embracing adulthood and learning to love your inner grown up, as seen through the eyes of a Filipino migrant who grew up in New Zealand.
