Line-up shows are funny things, I mean obviously comedy shows are largely all funny, but line-up shows are a different kind of funny.
After a couple of years in the making and a successful premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Tickled is finally about to be shown in NZ theatres.
Last year I reviewed Jonny Potts’ NZ Comedy Fest show: The Delusionaries.
When I was very young, maybe 4 or 5, my parents took me to watch Torvill and Dean who came to New Zealand and did their ice skating thing at the Hutt Park Raceway
I didn’t even want to see Mad Max: Fury Road. I don’t do action movies.
I think it’s important to make two disclaimers before I go any further with this review.
The Iraq war started twelve years ago, briefly after the invasion of Afghanistan following the attacks on New York City in 2001.
What a frustrating watch! This should have been a documentary that I enjoyed immensely.
Tim Batt went to a screening at the Documentary Edge Festival, the screening he sat in featured all three of the following:
24 hours. That’s how long the record stood for hardest review I’d had to write for a Comedy Festival show.
Last year I saw Reginald D. Hunter as part of the Comedy Festival. His show hinged upon one big giant rape joke he did smack in the middle of his set.
Eastend Cabaret is the type of show that isn’t for everyone. It’s for most people. But not for everyone.
I’ll copy/paste the blurb for Des’ show to set some context: In February 2013, Des moved to China for a year so he could learn enough Mandarin to perform stand-up to a Chinese audience. He even starred on China’s biggest dating show. Now he’s here to share these hilarious and unique experiences with you.
Sanjay Parbhu has been performing as a comedian for around 7 years, since graduating from the NZ comedy fest initiative “Class Comedians” while still in high school. This is his debut solo show.
This show boasts two of the best up and comers on the Wellington comedy circuit.
I don’t laugh at stand-up comedy a whole lot any more. I have performed it a bit. I’ve seen it an awful lot more. I’ve watched it on TV. I’ve reviewed it.
As well as going to watch Singin’ in the Rain, this weekend also saw me and Kim going to watch Ricky Martin at the TSB Arena. Big weekend.
