Funny Stories from Funny Woman Caroline Welkin,
Wellington Comedian and Story Teller brings laughs to La Fiesta

A Funny Thing Happened… On the Way to Whanganui
Caroline developed this show from some of her most popular stories about small moments of life that had hilarious impacts along the way. Caroline has been telling tall tales and funny stories professionally since her arrival in Wellington in 1997. This show featured at Laughter Wellness Convention 2015 and the Wellington Fringe Festival 2015. Caroline has also enjoyed sharing humour and stories at the Sydney International Story Tellers Conference and in the International Belly of the Whale School festivals.

She says “People were crying with laughter at the Laughter Wellness Convention and I am delighted to be able to bring these stories to Whanganui”. Caroline, a former Comedy Diva, Pulp Comedian and one of New Zealand’s first comedy teachers, embraced story to add to her performances when her funny fell off briefly. Come and hear how aqua-jogging brought her back to being a fast thinking funny woman. Caroline has been a regular comedy festival performer since moving to Wellington after her comedy training in the UK.

Caroline will also be sharing comedy theory to harness your humour at a practical workshop, Naturally Funny, during the La Fiesta festival.

Caroline has performed everywhere from festivals to basement bars. “Comedy performance is an addiction that constantly brings me new stories and opportunities to meet interesting people wherever I go. I am really looking forward to experiencing La Fiesta in one of my favourite cities.”

If you have ever wondered what motivates a comedian to book their first gig and how it relates to cheese, come and find out at “A funny thing happened…”
