The stars of the Edinburgh Fringe, Montreal Just for Laughs and London’s West End bring their unique blend of fast paced sketch comedy to New Zealand for the first time.

2010 Chortle Award Winners and 2009 Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominees, the Idiots of Ants have had their sketches shown around the world (Channel Ten, BBC and Fox). They’ve also attracted a huge online following with their ‘Facebook in real life’ and ‘Wii Breakfast’ sketches becoming two of the UK’s most viewed YouTube comedy clips with almost 10 million views.

Idiots of Ants are Andrew Spiers, James Wrighton, Elliott Tiney and Benjamin Wilson. Since forming in 2007 they have gone on to completely sell-out five Edinburgh Festival shows and a West End run as well as performing at comedy clubs and festivals around the world.

Prepare to witness the most bizarre revelation of World War 2, some jokes your dad might like and the epic launch of the new Idiots of Ants interactive computer game - ‘Urban Sword Fighter 3’. The only show at the festival with a sketch performed entirely in German (don’t worry there are subtitles).

"Rock ‘n’ roll hysteria meets sharp and brilliant comedy, 5 Stars." - Time Out UK

"As strong visually as they are verbally…riotously exuberant… if you want to guarantee putting a smile on your face, it’s hard to think of a better show to see" - Telegraph UK
