THE STAR OF 7DAYS HAS LEARNED THAT TRUTH IS FUNNIER THAN FICTION
Truth is funnier than fiction, and Cal Wilson loves a good yarn. Especially if it involves personal peril, social awkwardness or just good old-fashioned eavesdropping.
In this brand new show, Cal shares her favorite bizarre real-life moments and invites the audience to chuck in a few of their own. Celebrating stories of embarrassment, implausible triumph, and overheard genius; and unraveling the back stories of everything from “my ex left me for the stripper on that brochure,” to the elderly man lying on a bank floor, groaning, “this almost never happens...”
This is Cal's first solo show in New Zealand since 2001, and she's excited to be back home. In the meantime, the inaugural Billy T Award Winner has been touring non-stop throughout Australia and making regular TV appearances in both countries, becoming a fan favorite on 7 Days (TV3), Spicks ‘n' Specks (TV1) and Thank God You're Here (TVNZ/Comedy Channel).
Join her as she searches for the Greatest Story Ever Told. It could be yours...
(ps. It's not eavesdropping if its research)
