Cory tells us about his event interests:

 

Q: What types of events do you usually attend?

A: Comedy & Music.

 

Q: Who is the best artist you have ever seen live?

A: Ricky Gervais - Humanity .. Hands down the best act I’ve seen live. One of my favourite people in the world.

 

Q: Who are your favourite stand-up comedians?

A: Ricky Gervais. Also a big fan of Sean Lock, Kevin Hart and Joe Rogan.

 

Q: Which sports do you enjoy seeing live? (apart from rugby!)

A: Boxing & Basketball.

 

Q: What is your favourite venue?

A: Principality Stadium is obviously number 1. Behind that I did really enjoy Newlands Stadium in South Africa. The stands there are so vertical it makes it feel like the crowd is on top of you.

 

Q: What type of theatre events do you usually attend? (e.g. drama, musicals, opera) / Which show is your all-time favourite production? 

A: I’ve only ever been to see one musical, The Book of Mormon. Went a couple of months ago and thought it was brilliant! Definitely be looking to go again soon. I’m not sure if this comes into this category but I also really enjoyed Derren Brown’s show when he was in Cardiff.

 

Q: Who would be your three dream headline acts to perform at a festival?

A: Ed Sheeran, John Mayer and Mumford & Sons.

 

 

Q: Are there any events/artists that you would like to see that you haven't yet seen?

A: The obvious major sporting events Super Bowl, Football World Cup Final and Olympics. Kevin Hart and John Mayer would probably be top of the non sporting list at the moment.
