IT'S ONLY BEEN A FEW MONTHS SINCE THE LAST ELECTION AND THINGS ARE ALREADY BEGINNING TO FALL APART...
Time for another round of satire with the award nominated Public Service Announcements.
After a sold out season at the 2011 New Zealand International Comedy Festival, and a now legendary run at BATS Theatre during the Rugby World Cup, the No Fefe Collective return to the scene of their crimes with an All New Show!
It's Budget time at the Beehive, but can Bill English get the changes he wants past John and Steven? Whose side will the Maori Party end up on? Is Peter Dunne the Kingmaker he thinks he is? How are Greens coping with an increase in power? And what is Winston up to? Meanwhile, Labour waits and plots…
Hair of the dog Productions and No Fefe Collective bring together, again, an outrageous and talented cast of misfits for some fantastic late-night fun at BATS in the final week of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival. There may be fighting, there may be dancing, there may be muppets!
A fantastic show for anyone interested in what happened to their vote, with an extra treat for the members of the public service, or simply those wishing to have a good laugh at our inglorious leaders.
Public Service Announcements is guaranteed to be the comedy event of the third week of the festival… it's that good!
