Get Ready for a Side Splitting Yoga Launch!

Catch the action in your lunch break, as comedians aplenty will abound in Cuba Mall on 4 April, to mark the ODDFELLOWS NZ International Comedy Festival Launch.

Well known Wellington comics Steve Wrigley and Greg Ellis are eager to practice and share the benefits of “Laughing Yoga”. After minutes of training the two have fine tuned their “laughing yogi” style and are ready to teach. In their capable hands volunteers and participants learn about the health benefits of laughter – once you start you won’t be able to stop!

Many comedians who are involved in the festival will be present to savour laughing yoga delights and promote their own shows.
Comedy Festival Programmes and ODDFELLOWS mints will be handed out to onlookers and eager participants.

The Launch marks the release of the ODDFELLOWS NZ International Comedy Festival Programme. The programme is available now in various bars and cafes around the Wellington CBD. Be sure to pick one up today and book in early. Shows are already selling out!

Laughing is set to continue with the opening of the ODDFELLOWS NZ International Comedy Festival on 15 May – 3 June.

Wrigley and Ellis will be performing together in the Comedy Festival with “The Mullet Brothers Save the World…Again” (30 May – 3 June, BATS Theatre). Wrigley also has a solo show, “Geek Sheek” (1 June, San Francisco Bathhouse). Ellis is a well known improvisor from “The Improvisors” who perform 21 & 28 May at Circa 2.
