No promises but some content may offend when the stars of the NZ International Comedy Festival let loose at the end of a hard day’s night.
The Classic Late & Live, every Wednesday to Saturday at 10pm, is a crowd favourite during the annual Comedy Festival. A show where punters have come to expect the unexpected with spontaneous moments of comedy gold that are tucked away in a show that features local and international comedians letting loose at the end of a long day at the office.
The unpredictable show is hosted each night by one of the international guest comedians visiting the festival. Traditionally at Late & Live comedians will challenge the audiences, break some new ideas and aim to be as topical as possible, matching wits with each other and the punters.
And audiences can look forward to some fireworks in week one when Australian festival legend, Brendon Burns hosts the show (Sat 28 April to Sat 5 May), a comedian with a reputation for roasting hecklers and idiots alive.
“The honest truth is often funny and never dull. And that’s exactly what you get with Burns.” said the Guardian UK.
