U.S. comedian promises not to buy any land during NZ International Comedy Festival.

It is always refreshing to find an American, particularly a comedian, who knows where the rest of the world is! Bill Dawes has performed all over the U.S. and the world, including tours of Canada, Hong Kong, the Philippines, South Africa, and New Zealand. As part of the USO, he has performed for coalition forces in Iraq and Kuwait in front of crowds of over 8,000 international troops at bases in Baghdad. From April 27 he will be a guest comedian at the 2012 NZ International Comedy Festival including performing his own solo show in the Classic Studio from 9 to 12 May.

Bill Dawes is an actor/comic/writer. Don't be fooled by his boyish looks, his comedy isn't for everybody. His high-energy delivery mixes adult subjects and material with comedy we can all relate to making his show a non-stop barrage of laughter you won’t soon forget.

"Gross but adorable" -- Asbury Park Press

As an actor, he has appeared in several award-winning independent films, including Adam, Evenhand and Fiona. He’s had starring roles in two MGM Studio children’s films—Just for Kicks and Recipe for Disaster—and an acting/writing role in the DVD cult hit I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.

On TV, Bill has been on several hit shows, including Sex and the City, OZ, Law and Order, and Law and Order: Criminal Intent.

As a stage actor, Bill’s first role was on Broadway with Sigourney Weaver and Christopher Durang in the play Sex and Longing. He recently returned to Broadway to star in Lombardi playing American football legend Paul Hornung.

Bill is excited to be back in New Zealand at the Classic after performing here in 2010. And while he has had his eye on a number of NZ dairy farms he appreciates that now is not a good time.
