Comedy fest review: White Man Behind a Desk in WMBADx: Idea worth spreading

Comedy fest review: White Man Behind a Desk in WMBADx: Idea worth spreading

White Man Behind a Desk has scaled heights faster than most comedians get to. For the last wee while he’s been honing his Colbert/Stewart pastiche and delivering lefty sermons with humour from behind his desk and building quite the following.

Comedy fest review: Eli Matthewson in An Inconvenient Poof

Comedy fest review: Eli Matthewson in An Inconvenient Poof

I feel almost a paternal instinct towards Eli’s comedy. I saw him in his Billy T nominated show ‘Faith’ in 2015, then again last year in ‘The Year of Magical Fucking’ and I usually will leave it at a couple of shows to review a comic before I move on to someone else.

Comedy fest review: Wilson Dixon in What a Country!

Comedy fest review: Wilson Dixon in What a Country!

I have been hanging out to see Wilson Dixson for years. There’s something super alluring about what he does. The cowboy shtick that he has down to a fine art, that soft picking at the guitar as he gently woos you with his drawl and his songs. This year was my first time seeing a full Wilson Dixon hour and I wasn’t disappointed.

Comedy Fest Review: Marcel Lucont in Etc. A Chat Show

I knew it. I knew Marcel Lucont would be a phenomenal show. I saw his show a couple of years ago when he was last in New Zealand and it was one of the shows I was most looking forward to

Comedy Fest Review: Donna Brookbanks in You do you babes

Comedy Fest Review: Donna Brookbanks in You do you babes

What a joyous eruption of chaos, energy and laughter. Donna’s show You do you babes is crammed full with so much energy, so much material that it’s almost exhausting.

Comedy fest review: Alice Snedden in Self-titled: Volume II

Comedy fest review: Alice Snedden in Self-titled: Volume II

Alice Snedden is a fucking good comedian. I try to get along to as many Billy T Nominee shows in Wellington as possible because I often don’t know much about the comics and so frequently unearth some gold, like Guy Montgomery from a few years back. Alice is like Guy in that I went in knowing little and left being super impressed.

Comedy fest review: Lucy Roche & Ray O’Leary in Young, dumb and full of comedy

Comedy fest review: Lucy Roche & Ray O’Leary in Young, dumb and full of comedy

Lucy Roche and Ray O’Leary are a couple of NZ comics on the up and up. Lucy won the National Raw Comedy Quest in 2016 and Ray was a Billy T Award nominee last year. They both have a solid resume of shows and experience but there’s still a bit of work to be done.

Comedy fest review: James Veitch in Dot Con

Comedy fest review: James Veitch in Dot Con

James Veitch is known for his hilarious emails, no not the guy who tried to pay his power bills with a spider-drawing, but for being the guy who emails back scammers. The Nigerian Prince types.

Comedy fest review: Jeremy Elwood in Three night stand

Comedy fest review: Jeremy Elwood in Three night stand

Jeremy Elwood is basically Mr New Zealand comedy at this point in his career. He is so polished, so professional that investing in his show is practically a sure thing, and Three Night Stand doesn’t disappoint.
