A big congratulations to Kiwi comedian, James Nokise, winner of the inaugural Imagic Smartypants Award. The title and $999 cash prize recognise what our judges determined to be the most creative show at this years World Buskers Festival. Why was his show the most creative?
Head judge and Imagic account director, Tim Thomas told me that, “James’ show was a refreshing example of how an established theatrical form such as stand up can be cleverly subverted to create a truly outstanding experience for the audience.” Here’s a picture of Imagic Director, Paul Fairbairn handing a fat stack of “Rutherfords” to James… who is so G, he started eating the prize money. Hey James, you still owe us $1 change from the $1000 we gave you. Pay up Gangsta! We will accept a gold coin in our hat… #SoSoGangsta #WBF #Imagic
