Comedians out of their comfort zone. This could go VERY WRONG
What makes a great comedian? Is it material, timing, personality or just that indefinable X factor? In a world first, Terry Frisby will be hosting a late show with a difference where comedians will be performing material written by and for someone else completely. See one liner merchants performing musical comedy, storytellers trying magic and physical comics doing deadpan. Premiering on Saturday 28th April in The Basement.
Featuring stars of 7 Days, international guests, Billy T winners and nominees, Fred winners and a lot of surprises every night. The line up will change every night, so no two nights will be the same. This is the show the comedians are all talking about more than any other. Could be amazing, could be a disaster. A proper late show where anything and everything is likely to happen
Devised and hosted by Terry Frisby who returned to NZ last year after 11 years working on the UK comedy circuit. An original member of NZ's Brat Pack who toured New Zealand for 3 years culminating in a run at at the Edinburgh Festival in 2001 with Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords), Jeremy Elwood (7 Days) and Chris Brain (Billy T Award 2009) – Terry has over 15 years as a professional comedian and is acknowledged as one of NZ's leading comedians.
