Comedy Festival

Comedy duo The Bitches’ Box has had rural New Zealand buzzing for the last five years. But now they’re leaving the comfort of the woolsheds behind to take on the big city, appearing for the first time ever at this year’s NZ International Comedy Festival.

The Bitches’ Box will perform their latest show Sons of A Bitch as part of the renowned festival, which runs from April 27 until May 21.

A fast-paced, multi-character comedy show, Sons of A Bitch has toured to the remotest corners of the country, whilst successfully avoiding all town centres. But now country bumpkin Amelia Dunbar and city slicker Emma Newborn will take to stages in Auckland and Wellington in an attempt to bridge the urban/rural divide in the only way they know how by pretending to be dogs.

Sons of A Bitch, which is a sequel to the comedy duo’s self-titled 5-star gem The Bitches’ Box, follows two country boys as they are forced to visit the local town vet where they meet a revolving door of equally delightful, deranged and disturbing dogs.

Together, physical comics Newborn and Dunbar conjure up a hilariously imaginative world that throws the spotlight on our four legged friends. They bounce from one character to another at breakneck speed, revealing the glorious inner workings of a dogs mind.

A hit with audiences from Edendale to Edinburgh, from woolsheds to glittering arts festivals worldwide, the sidesplitting Sons of A Bitch will have you peeing in the aisles and begging for more.

“…this is comedy genius... full-speed, never-let-up comedy gold throughout… Do not miss it!” - Theatreview, NZ

“The Bitches’ Box is fall-off-the-chair funny, so brilliantly written and executed that only admiration makes you stop snorting.” - The Times, UK
