FRINGE SHOW - QUENTIN
To assist acclaimed author, actor and advocate for people with disabilities Quentin Kenihan fund and launch his live show I’m 40 … Now What? for the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
Quentin Kenihan, known to his mates as just Q, is one of the most witty, strong and inspiring people that Amago has ever had the pleasure to work with.
The author of Not All Superheroes Wear Capes was born with the rare bone disorder Osteogenesis Imperfecta - a condition which caused his bones to break and meant a life in a wheelchair.
He endeared himself to the nation at just seven years of age when he was interviewed by Mike Willesee - but dark days followed with depression, drug and alcohol dependency shadowing his teenage years. He kicked those habits, found his charm again and Quentin has gone to produce and star in many television productions. Most recently, he played a key role as Corpus Colussus in the Academy Award winning film Mad Max: Fury Road - meaning he joined a select club of disabled actors to be involved in an Oscar winning film.
Quentin loves to keep busy and decided his next venture would be a series of live shows as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival titles I’m 40 … Now What?
Amago put together a proposal to secure a major sponsor for the project as well as a social media competition and kickstarter program to raise the required funds.
Law firm Duncan Basheer Hannon ultimately came on as the major sponsor, the funding requirements were met and the show was a huge hit - selling out all performances.
Quentin thanked Amago for the support in making the performance a reality - “Amago secured valuable sponsorship for why Fringe campaign and contributed marketing solutions that have had a direct result on our ticket sales. Personal and effective service with an amazing passion for assisting people to reach their goals.”
