The 5 Star Comedy Showcase on the Shore. One night only.

It’s a Shore thing! Seven International guest comedians kick off the NZ International Comedy Festival at the Bruce Mason Centre in Takapuna.

Already an established hit show at SKYCITY Theatre, producer Scott Blanks, is bringing the ‘5 Star’ to the Shore on Saturday April 28th, to kick off a series of 4 international shows to be staged at the popular venue during the 2012 NZ International Comedy Festival.

‘The 5 Star Comedy Showcase on the Shore’ will feature MC Janey Godley from Scotland, a festival favourite in N.Z. on her 4th return tour. Acclaimed by critics as the ‘female Billy Connolly’, Janey brings a big reputation to the party. Hecklers beware!

Janey will introduce;
- Gordon Southern (England) – A very experienced UK comedian who made a lot of friends on debut here in 2011 so we invited him back in 2012.
- The Boy With Tape On His Face (NZL) - Our latest international success story who is building a big reputation in Europe. Seen on the Royal Variety Performance in Dec 2011.
- Stuart Taylor (South Africa) – A favourite at home and the first South African comedian to guest at the annual NZ International Comedy Festival in its 20 year history.
- Bill Dawes (USA) – Flying the stars and stripes at this year’s fest a well travelled comedian from the U.S. who actually knows where the rest of the world is.
- Chris Cox (England) – Award winning comedy mind-reader who, believe it or not, can’t actually read minds. Yet his act it never fails to astound sold out houses. Voted ‘Best Live Comedy Show’ in the UK in 2011 by Venue Magazine.
- Andrew O’Neill (England) – Not only a transvestite, cross dressing, steam-punk, metal-head, vegan, occult comedian but also a rising star on the UK comedy circuit offering something alternative. No kidding!

Many of the comedians appearing in the ‘5 Star Comedy Showcase on the Shore’ will be appearing again in other shows at the Bruce Mason Centre during the 3 week festival including;

Tues 8 May - The Boy With Tape On His Face … More Tape (New Show)

Fri 11 May - The Big Show on The Shore featuring Janey Godley, Milton Jones, Stuart Taylor, Bill Dawes, Chris Martin and Dan Willis

Mon 14 May - South Africa Stands Up featuring Stuart Taylor and Urzila Carlson
