Filmmaker Louis Theroux to come to New Zealand next year for Auckland show

Award-winning BBC filmmaker Louis Theroux is set to come to New Zealand for the first time next year for one night only.

The journalist and social commentator will perform at Auckland's Civic Theatre on January 10, 2020, for his new live show, Louis Theroux Without Limits, he announced.

"I'm delighted to be taking my tour to Auckland and I'm excited that I'll finally get to meet my Kiwi fans for the first time," Theroux said.

The evening promises to see Theroux discuss a range of topics from his catalogue of work, including the opioid epidemic, sex trafficking, religious extremes and modern day relationships - all with his trademark sense of humour.

Theroux will be joined by television and radio personality Julia Zemiro.

Presale tickets go on sale Tuesday, June 18 at 9am. Public tickets will be available for purchase on Monday, June 24, at 9am.
