Second "Comedy Underground" even bigger
MEDIA RELEASE 19 April 2006
Second "Comedy Underground" to be even bigger than the first
Featuring acts ranging from an Oscar nominees to New Zealand's most offensive comedians, April's COMEDY UNDERGROUND will be even bigger than the wildly successful first show.
On Sunday 30 April, the lineup for the second COMEDY UNDERGROUND at Bodega's ROOM 101 will include Billy T Award winner (with the Humourbeasts) and Academy Award nominee (as Taika Waititi) Taika Cohen, along with the winners of "Most Offensive Gag" in the 2005 NZ Comedy Guild Awards, musical duo mrs.peacock.
Cohen, with his penchant for absurd characters, is guaranteed to have the audience rolling in the aisles, while mrs.peacock will reel them in with the sweet melodies of their trademark lovesongs before unleashing the filth (those of a sensitive disposition should consider themselves warned).
This outstanding lineup will be rounded out with the unique comedic stylings of Wellington's own Guy Capper, whose bizarre improvisations make him like no other standup in the world – and the fresh face of Emma Olsen, who recently won the 2006 Indigo Rookie Competition.
COMEDY UNDERGROUND is a new regular gig at Bodega, taking place on the last Sunday of every month. Tickets are $8 on the door (doors open 7pm) and shows start promptly at 8pm.
