Award-winning US actor, writer and comedian Nick Offerman returns to Australia for the first time since 2016, with his brand-new live show, All Rise. Offerman will open the national tour of All Rise in Adelaide on June 2, before taking it around the country to Perth, Melbourne, Canberra, Hobart, Sydney and Brisbane. Tickets for all shows go on sale at 2pm on Thursday, February 7.
All Rise is an evening of deliberative talking and light dance that will compel you to chuckle whilst enjoining you to brandish a better side of humanity than the one to which we have grown accustomed. Genuflection optional: in my church, you kneel as you please!
