Chris Parker is Here for a Good Time

Over the past years we’ve seen Chris Parker take out the Celebrity Treasure Island crown, craft his own crown out of felt  during  lockdown (which was then bought by the Auckland Museum), and show us his and his flatmates’ lives on Instagram. All the while, he was writing a book.

Chris Parker has built a large audience with his charismatic storytelling and online video sketches. Here for a Good Time allows you to take Chris home for a much-needed pick me up whenever you need. We ask that you, however, don’t take him off the stage at this event.

 Join Chris, the most openly gay, unapologetically camp man to come out of Christchurch, with local legend and fellow new writer, Jason Gunn, to discuss his debut book of short stories, essays and musings – the pick-me-up book full of early 2000s Christchurch references you didn’t know you needed until now.

This is one of two WORD events happening at The Piano on Wednesday 16 November – buy tickets to both and save!

Our friends at UBS will have the book for sale on the night, or you can order it online here.

Presented in partnership with Allen & Unwin.



Wednesday, 16 November
The Piano, 156 Armagh St 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm $23 full price / $19 concession (+ booking fee)
