The Devil Made Me Do It Wednesday May 14 - to Saturday May 17 8pm Adults $15, Conc $12, Groups 5+ $10 The Devil made me do it just finished a sell out season in Wellington! Performing huge gigs to well over a hundred people a night Steve Wrigley and Cohen Holloway took the lime light in what both would describe as the best hour of their comedy career, if not their lives! Cohen bought a wild mix of impressions and one man documentaries featuring a range of characters, including a special episode of American Idol featuring Arnold Swazzenegger and Sadam that had the crowd in tears. Wrigley was in top form, delivering every gag and every punch line with expert skill as he weaved in and out of his relationships, his views on the world today and those darn kids. Now set to take their unique high energy brand of comedy to the city of sails, Auckland better batton down the hatches and head for the Devonport tunnels because these boys are going to tear your funny bones a new one!

Comedy Dogs Wednesday 14 May to Saturday 17 May 9.30pm $15 each or $12 for group concessions of 10 or more Andre King, Terry Williams and Vaughan King are The Comedy Dogs. They're cool and professional but don't make them angry. (You wouldn't like them when they're angry.) Hip and stylish comedy-noir stand-up and sketches. They will tickle your funny bone or they will break it. It's all the same to them.
