Nik Rabinowitz - Fortyfied

See all events

Hi, Nik here.

Some of you will know that I just turned 40. If you didn’t attend my 40th because you couldn’t make it, it was amazing, you really missed out. If you didn’t attend because you weren’t invited – I apologise but you really didn’t miss anything. Ask anyone who was there.

I was recently on the verge of a midlife crisis but since the arrival of my baby daughter, I can’t seem to find the time for one. Also, I heard that 40 is the new 30 so now I’m not sure when to have the crisis, which is a crisis in itself. While I’m figuring all this out, instead of buying a Ferrari and abandoning my family, I’m putting on a new one-man show called Fortyfied.

In Fortyfied I explore a variety of subjects. There will be stories, there will be accents and – it will all be funny, which is all you really have to know.

I can tell you that historically speaking; most of you will enjoy it very much, a small minority will hate it, and yet another small minority will love it so much you’ll want to give a standing ovation but feel too awkward to do so. To the latter, I urge you to overcome your fears before attending the show, remember – standing ovations don’t start themselves.

Oh, and some of you will write me letters telling me you’re disappointed that I used swear words. Trust me, I’ve been doing this for about fifteen years now and that’s usually the way it goes.

Fortyfied. It’s a pun, or a spelling error – depending on your worldview. Either way, it’s on at The Baxter from December 6th to January 14th.

Best kind warm fondest regards with love sincerely,
