This May, the live comedy chat show nobody asked for comes to Wellington.
Raised by a 23” cathode ray tube TV flickering images of David Letterman, Jon Stewart and Oprah directly in to his brain, Tim knew he wanted to host his own chat show.
After blackmailing national treasure Disasteradio into the essential role of band leader/sidekick, Tim is now able to live out his misguided fantasies during the 2019 NZ International Comedy Festival.
Space Couch is hosted by comedian Tim Batt, joined by electronic/synthpop musician Luke Rowell (aka Disasteradio/Eyeliner). This premiere late-night line up show in the 2019 NZ International Comedy Festival will be exciting, unpredictable and hilarious.
Tim and Disasteradio will be joined each night by a slew of surprisingly top shelf celebrities, live music and guest comedians - think Fallon, but not sh*t.
Host Tim Batt co-created NZ’s most successful podcast (The Worst Idea of All Time, with over 10 million downloads), has two nominations for the Billy T Award (2014/15) and one for LA Laugh Factory’s Funniest Person in The World contest (2016).
“(Tim is) by my gauge, one of the brightest young comedians the Southern Hemisphere's seen in yonks.” - Chlöe Swarbrick
Luke Rowell aka Disasteradio has been creating and performing electronic and synth music around the world for over 10 years. Influenced heavily by technology and internet culture, this will be his debut in a live comedy show.
