Mark ?n` Simon and the Professor Not only a show - but an experience!! SUNDAY 9th MARCH 8pm $8

A trio of musical comedy genius from Europe. This is one of only 2 New Zealand shows, so don't miss this once in lifetime chance!

Mark Nicholas (Wales) Simon Elmore (Ireland) and Trevor Coleman-The Professor- (New Zealand) teamed up in Munich, Germany in 1985 and have become a well-established and extremely popular music-comedy trio. They have toured continuously throughout Europe and enthralled thousands of delighted audiences in sold-out venues (open-airs, city halls, clubs, theatres) as well as an impressive list of TV shows and recordings.

The trio enjoy an ever-growing popularity and success with their international MusiComedy show which is made up of an extensive repertoire of popular songs from Louis Armstrong through to today.

Spontaneity and improvisation are the pulse in this positively, quick-witted, highly visual show. With acrobatic vocals and slick harmonies, guitars, keyboard, bass and trumpet this trio brings an extremely colourful and entertaining show. Parodies, sketches, lightning costume changes, gags, jokes and with an emphasis on audience participation (appealing to every age) makes it an unforgettable evening!!

Finally, after almost 18 years, for the very first time ever, this Trio will materialise in N.Z. to delight and amuse their Kiwi antipodes- an experience you can?t afford to miss.

Translations of newspaper critics:

Sold-out yet again! An evening devoid of any low-points. The mascara was running because of the constant laughter among the 600 strong crowd. (Munich Merkur)

Their performance was the highlight of the festival! The magical trio most certainly earned their 6 encores, much to the delight and roars of laughter from the largest crowd to date. (Baseler Zeitung, Switzerland)

An absolute guarantee for an unforgettable evening. (Sud Deutsche Zeitung.)

With an obsession for quality and the highest standards in good clean fun and entertainment, these two guys-and the bloke in a white coat (The Professor from New Zealand) are without any doubt the cherry on top of the cake of music and comedy... You?ll regret it if you miss you them: So don?t! (Doppelpunkt, Nurnberg)

Their show is so funny, impulsive, spontaneous and clever, that the audience can hardly catch their breath for laughing. (Rheinische Post)

It was one of those landmark events where you kept having flashes of instinct that this blistering show couldn?t get any better. And then it did, each time. My stock of superlatives is empty! (Sud Kurier)
