NO MOVEMENT IN THE WAITING ROOM
Does humanity have a personality disorder?
No Movement In The Waiting Room represents more of the same from comic Jesse Griffin in his first ever stand up show.
We have come a long we humans, but where exactly are we off to? Continuing on as we have seems like the epitome of "craziness" - indicative of borderline personality disorder - yet no doubt that is exactly what will happen. This leads us to the question "does humanity have a personality disorder"? Are we all secretly obsessively washing our hands and finding it difficult making friends? Maybe, Jesse doesn't know. For this reason the show will involve some survey questions.
The occupy protesters all over the world are clearly onto something - free camping in the middle of major metropolitan areas (do you know how much it actually costs to live in Aotea Square?) - but are they right?
At this very moment thousands of scientists in Switzerland are involved in the largest experiment ever undertaken - discovering the particles that provide the building blocks of the universe by firing them at each other down a 50km long underground tunnel. But these particles are so small you can't even see them. How do the scientists even know they're there? How stupid do these "scientists" think we are?
No Movement In The Waiting Room is basically a summing up of everything that is happening right now.
Award winning comedian Jesse Griffin returned to New
Zealand in 2010 after 15 years working in the UK and Australia and
has quickly cemented himself as one of New Zealand's best comedic
As a member of Australian based comedy threesome The 4 Noels, Jesse toured NZ, Australia and the UK during the late 1990's and the early 2000's. Their high energy brand of physical comedy earned them sell-out seasons, critical acclaim and a number of awards and accolades including the Edinburgh Spirit of the Fringe Award, best comedy awards at the Melbourne and Wellington Fringe Festivals.
Jesse turned his hand to solo stand up in 2010 and his first ever gig in London just happened to be alongside Milton Jones, Rich Hall, Ed Byrne, and Glenn Wool. His understated delivery and clever observational humour has seen him become a regular performer on TV3's hit panel show 7 Days and at the Classic Comedy Bar in Auckland.
A sought-after comedy writer and actor, Jesse is developing a number of TV projects for air this year.
