Your Name Here – The Allusionist Live

7PM Sunday 7 August

Returning to Aotearoa New Zealand for the first time since their sold-out tour of 2019, the award-winning entertainment podcast The Allusionist is back with an all new stage show ‘Your Name Here’. The show’s linguistic pincers get stuck into words that come from people’s names: eponyms. Eponyms find themselves all over menus, hats, exercise manoeuvres, streets, towns, measurements, flowers, space, guns, diseases… Sometimes they’re an honour, sometimes they’re an insult, but they’re always a good story. Join host Helen Zaltzman and musician Martin Austwick for a fun, fascinating and irreverent adventure into the chaotic world of words.

“The Allusionist, a podcast about the English language, is an absolute delight. Host Helen Zaltzman is prone to going down fascinating etymological wormholes, uncovering the history behind certain turns of phrase.” – Refinery29

The Allusionist made a true piece of stage-craft in the tradition of what you usually here in your podcatcher. It’s smart, funny, and extremely Helen-Zaltzmanian, with an extra shoutout to Martin Austwick for the accompaniment and dry commentary that makes the show really feel live.” – Bello Collective

“Every episode, Zaltzman finds something new and utterly fascinating” – The Observer (UK)

“My new favourite is The Allusionist, about words and the English language. I haven’t hit a dud yet” – The New York Times.
