James Roque Badong

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.

'Badong, the stand-up show, is the epitome of slick and professional presentation by a comic at ease on stage and with his material.'
