Wow! What an awesome night! The packed out auditorium that is the Sky City Theatre was humming with many many dozen people (in fact, enough people to have the venue sold out) looking for laughs. And it was at this fountain of laughter that they gained their release.
My chat during my lunch break, over a few drinks, with the fanastic Jan-Maree while she was in Auckland for meetings. Find the details of our chat below!
Read below about her experiences with G Strings in Wellington Hotels, and some topless touring stories!
(Normally I’d put a poster or photo here, but I forgot to get a photo, and I don’t think the Poster is finished yet)
A while back I caught up with the fantastic Clayton Carrick-Leslie about his Comedy Experience, and shows. Have a read if you’re interested in him, and keep reading to the bottom. There may be some giveaways.
I had a good chat with NZ’s God-Father of Comedy about his experience with comedy in NZ, and his running of the RAW Comedy Quest up here in Auckland.
I exchanged a few emails with the fantastic Gish, about his comedy, songwriting and his show this year!

Fatal Distraction is the fifth brand new show from the multi award-winning, five star, fringe sell-out, mind reader who can’t read minds, Chris Cox. He’s been on TV, toured the world and is somehow still getting away with it. Fatal Distraction has picked up a magical hat full of 5 star reviews and won the 2011 Venue Magazine award for best comedy show.
Chris will be doing things he shouldn’t be able to do with the fringe brochure, performing tricks nobody has ever done before, controlling coincidence, probing theories of fate and answering the FAQ: ‘Can you use this stuff on girls?’. Determined to deliver the most satisfying hour possible Chris will be handing control over to his audience by giving them the power to control his actions with their minds. Cox manages to mix a love based narrative with some of the most unique and incredible mind-reading effects ever seen on the stage.
I had a wee chat a while ago with NZ Comedy Legend Brendhan Lovegrove. Over 20 minutes we chatted about all aspects of his careers, and life in the NZ Comedy Industry.
Warning: A little bit of fruity language happens in this interview. I wouldn’t edit it out because it takes away from the emphasis being made by Brendhan, and it sounded too artificial.
I was lucky enough to be able to get a few minutes of the great Rhys Darby’s time for an interview. You can see him back here in May for the tour for his show “This Way To Spaceship”. You can also buy the ajoining book by the same name, released through all good bookstores on April 12.
I had a chat with Jeremy Elwood about his Comedy history, and what He’s bringing to the festival this year.
The links and details of his show are below, and if you’re not sure (though be careful, these may sell out very quickly), I’ll be seeing Jeremy’s show on the 28th of April, and you can expect a blog about it, so you can make the decision to go, after that!
