LAUNCHING - Indigo Comedy Wednesdays

Media Release

LAUNCHING
Indigo Comedy Wednesdays

8pm Wednesday August 1st 2001

Enjoyed the laugh festival, want more? Very Serious Productions and Indigo
Bar and venue present Indigo “Comedy Wednesdays”. The cream of Wellington’s stand-up comedians are back. See the old hands at the stand-up game alongside the stylings of a new crop of local young talent.

If you enjoyed Pulp Comedy or the TV2 international LAUGH! Festival, then your Wednesdays are going to be filled up from now on. Featuring such stars as Sully O’Sullivan, Nigel Corbett, Flight of the Conchords, Michael Shadbolt,
and Fiona Mackinnon, these shows are full of belly laughing, side splitting (and other various “laughing" clichés) fun!

Organiser Ben Hurley says “Auckland has had regular stand-up nights for several years, and now boasts New Zealand’s only dedicated comedy venue, it’s time Wellington fought back. People in Wellington are starved of good regular stand-up, so we’re going to feed them”.

Indigo Comedy Wednesdays start on August the 1st and continue on the first
and third Wednesday of every month. So take off your politically correct
hats, you’re long earrings and Gucci suits and come to Indigo to laugh the
winter blues away.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.

Scoop Review Of Books: A Pale Ghost Writer

Reviewed by Ruth Brassington, Richard Flanagan's new novel is about a novelist hastily ghost-writing the biography of a crook about to go to trial. The reader is kept on a cliff-edge, as the narrator tries to get blood out of his stone man. More>>
