Five Funny Women for Local Laughter

Five Funny Women for Local Laughter

NZ International Comedy Festival

BATS Theatre

Thursday 18 May - Saturday 20 May 2006, 6.30pm

R30 - Stand up Comedy for people who'd rather have a nice lie down

Tel: 802 4175 or email for bookings

Missed the latest episode of Desperate Housewives? Don't worry, five funny women are ready to fill the gap, live, in Wellington in the upcoming Oddfellows International Laugh Festival.

Unlike the TV characters, our home grown comedians are neither desperate nor housewives. Fifi Colston, Cathie Sheat, Lynne Smith, Caroline E. Waltz and Lorraine Wards' talents stretch far beyond the kitchen sink. You're more likely to see them acting, storytelling, appearing in the Drag Kings, World of Wearable Art and stand up comedy. Running around in a pinny and a pair of pink Marigolds, or shagging the gardener, is not their run of the mill routine. They save those sorts of things to talk about on stage.

Working together as R30, Stand Up comedy for People Who Would Rather Have a Nice Lie Down, they've been making audiences laugh for the past year with their off-centre brand of humour. Once again they"ve combined their curious comedy in a brand new show which will have you rocking with mirth.

So don't be desperate, book now for a night out with R30 at BATS!
