From the Desk Of Richard - 2013!
Posted by Richard Carrington On the 13th March 2013
I wrote a From The Desk Of
at the end of 2012’s Comedy Festival. Unfortunately it wasn’t published, which is a real shame because it was really good. So this year I decided to get in early in the hopes it will make it on the website before the end.
Wowee, what a Festival
2012 has been
2013 is going to be. So far
two and a half weeks
no shows and now it draws
close to a close
has had a
will have a busy Festival with
four shows across Auckland and Wellington, we’ll end up with
44 performances, a few drinks and innumerable laughs.
In the first week we’ve got Jeremy Elwood
Time Bomb Notes
San Francisco Bathhouse
Ben Hurley & Steve Wrigley Dai Henwood
at the SFBH with Michele A’Court
at Q Theatre. These are full noise nonsense so get involved.
The thing you should really be doing this
Festival is checking out some of the newer local talent that’s out there.
I will be lucky enough to catch a few shows and can highly recommend in alphabetical order;
Bombs Away – So slick, genuine hilarity, an actual spectacle, I’d go and see this again, 32 stars
Comedy – Different each show, they know how to make that shit funny yo’, 32 stars
– Magnificent writing, perfect timing, this is a refined, honed and hilarious
45 minutes of comedy, 32 stars
– A fantastically funny, feel good show that you’ll leave with your face hole grinning and marveling at, 32 stars
These are just the shows
I will see that are on this
Festival, there are loads more out there waiting to be discovered and most of them are cheap as, so go on, give them a hoon.
