Documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux will return to Australia in 2020

After a sell-out tour in 2016, BBC film-maker, immersive journalist and social commentator Louis Theroux will visit Australia and New Zealand in January 2020 with a brand-new show: Louis Theroux Without Limits.

The tour will begin on Friday 10th January in Auckland before heading to Perth on Saturday 12th January for a show at the Riverside Theatre. Theroux will then head to Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne.

“It was a joy to visit Australia in 2016 and I was blown away by the overwhelming response to my first tour. Australians are obviously connoisseurs of the weird side of life, and I look forward to coming back to share even more memorable moments and extraordinary stories from the people I have encountered in my films. This time round we’re extending the tour to New Zealand and I’m thrilled that I’ll finally get to meet all my Kiwi fans for the first time.” Theroux said of the tour announcement.

Fans are invited to join the fearless multi award-winning BBC film-maker for an evening of insight and exploration as he delves into subjects from his extraordinary catalogue of work. From the scary truth of the opioid epidemic and the dark reality behind sex-trafficking, to religious extremes and a whole new rulebook on modern-day relationships, Louis tackles it all with first-hand insight and his trademark sense of humour.

Louis will be joined by television and radio personality Julia Zemiro. Julia will step into Louis’s weird and wonderful mind and together they journey across the world and into its plethora of subcultures, communities and citizens. In this two-hour live show, discover behind-the-scenes secrets as they relive some of Louis’s most famous encounters, and discuss what happened after the cameras stopped rolling.

Louis Theroux has been making BAFTA award winning films and documentaries for over twenty years. His skill has always been getting people to say more than they thought they would—or could. Through this approach, he has shone light on some of the world’s most intriguing beliefs, behaviours, and institutions by getting to know the people at the heart of them – from the officers and inmates at San Quentin prison to the extreme believers of the Westboro Baptist Church; the male porn performers of the San Fernando Valley to exploring the secrets of the Church of Scientology.

Louis’ new documentaries will have their Australian premiere on BBC Knowledge from June 27.
