DADDY SHORT-LEGS | Eli Matthewson 🗓

DADDY SHORT-LEGS | Eli Matthewson 🗓

FRI 28 OCT | 8PM (60MIN) | PWYC | AGE 15+


One of the best joke-writers in Aotearoa made headlines this year as part of the first-ever
same-sex couple on Dancing With The Stars, leading in week one before a shock elimination
in week two. Whaaaat?! Now Eli Matthewson is back behind the wheel, sharing those huge
life revelations that take place in the crappiest of cars.
While Eli is almost old enough to be a 'daddy', it’s his own father stealing some of his
thunder – because 10 years after Eli came out, his dad came out to him.
Now, we cannot WAIT to hear how this turned out… buckle up kids, this one will have you
rolling in your seats!
