Well-known Kiwi comedian Ben Hurley (7 Days) feels a bit helpless. The world seems to be moving in a strange direction and what can we do? Share another article on Facebook? Get in another dinner party argument?
Not Ben! He has gathered together a posse of comedy vigilantes, determined to make a stand (up) against injustice in the world.
Over three nights, Friday 31 March, Saturday 1 & Sunday 2 April, Auckland’s Classic Comedy Bar will host an exceptional line up of professional comedians donating their time and talent to raise money for three worthy causes: RainbowYOUTH, Women’s Refuge and the Asylum Seekers Support Trust. These NZ based charities will receive 100% of proceeds from ticket sales to their respective shows.
Hurley will be joined on stage by, arguably, one of the biggest and best comedy line-ups ever assembled in New Zealand. Including Jeremy Corbett (7 Days), Cori Gonzalez Macuer (What We Do In The Shadows), Dai Henwood (7 Days, Family Feud), Michele A’Court, Wilson Dixon, Te Radar, Paul Ego, Justine Smith, Brendhan Lovegrove, Jeremy Elwood plus a lot of the new up-and-coming talent including Pax Assadi, Melanie Bracewell, Eli Matthewson, David Correos and The Fan Brigade.
