The hermit genius of NZ standup Justin 'Rusty' White returns to Nelson Fringe with a new show full of smart stupidity and idiotic wisdom.

"A hidden gem of NZ comedy". - nzcomedyreviews

"A pro who has developed his own unique style and taken the time to master it". - TheatreView

Rusty debuted his smash-hit show "I Learnt Something Once" at the 2017 Dunedin Fringe Festival, going on to take it nationwide and over the Tasman to widespread critical acclaim and audience delight.

Once again Nelson Fringe gets the chance to see Justin 'Rusty' White with a brand new solo hour of hilarity "The Thinking Person's Idiot".

"Justin White is a hidden gem of a comic who deserves to be better known.

If you see his name on a poster somewhere do yourself a favour and buy a ticket." - Nzcomedyreviews Akl

"His dry, deadpan delivery complements perfectly the outrageous content of his stories

for a combination that will make you ache with laughter" - TheatreView Dndn

"Can only be described as hilarious". - ArtMurmurs Wgtn

"A fearless mix of form and content, constructed with intention and intelligence". - EchoesFromTheWings Nlsn

"Funny, funny, funny, funny, funny". - TheatreView Dndn
