The Grandpa Figs Festival Warm-Up is a chance for our little figlets to start getting ready for their festival shows, kicking off with Dunedin Fringe in March. It'll be a mix of stuff they've been working on this year, and entirely new material that needs a bit of daylight before it gets crammed into a new festival show.

This is a stacked line up of relatively new festival comics and seasoned veterans of the festival world....

And here they are....
Jonty Bennett:
Hailing from a small town the middle of the South, Jonty has far exceeded his family's expectations by surviving in the big city as long as he has (so far), and it hasn’t left him jaded at all (maybe just a bit)! With slick hair and even slicker comedy, you are bound to look at the world a little differently after seeing him on stage.

Snap presented by RuseWebsites
Early reviews of his life choices included things like “You could work in a box factory”, and, “Yeah I guess a two cent raise is easier than replacing you”. But look at him now! A whimsical pile of dreads, sex and rock ‘n’ roll, who once received the review “All I remember about Snap is that he has dreads and a floral jacket”.

Georgie Sivier:

Georgie is good.

Justin 'Rusty' White:
A critically acclaimed, multi-award-winning comedian. Who wouldn't be embarrassed by descriptions of his "virtually uninterrupted hour of laughter" show I Learnt Something Once like "a gem of a show", or the somewhat OTT "finely polished masterwork" (Theatreview). How would you like being described as "can only be described as hilarious" (ArtMurmurs Wgtn). How would you recover from being "undoubtedly the highlight of the night" (Caclin magazine) then going on to win Best Comedian (2016 Chch Comedy Awards)? All right, we get it! Jeez. Rusty wishes people would stop going on about it…

Pre-sales $10+bf
Door sales $15
