R30 – Stand-Up from 200 years of life experience


R30 – Stand-Up comedy from two hundred years of life experience!

ODDFELLOWS NZ International
Comedy Festival, BATS Theatre

Thursday 18 May – Saturday 20 May 2006, 6.30pm

Five women on a three-night stand. Not sex, though they’ll probably talk about it, this is R30, Stand-Up Comedy for Those Who Prefer a Nice Lie down. After a year of successful gigs in the Wellington region, these comedy chicks are coming to the ODDFELLOWS New Zealand International Comedy Festival with a fresh new show.

All of them “of a certain age”, they’ve got about 200 years of life experience between them – and that’s a lot of comedy material. They’ve been shaping that material to bring you a show that will be funny, cute, and possibly a little bit naughty.

Fifi Colston, Cathie Sheat, Lynne Smith, Lorraine Ward and Caroline Waltz are excited to be working together again for the Festival. Caroline says, “after all the nights we spend together swapping sex stories and sewing tips, it’s great to be able to share the gems with a wider audience”.

Multi-faceted when it comes to talent, they’re involved in acting, storytelling, Drag Kings, World of Wearable Arts, and stand up comedy. They’ve performed in New Zealand and overseas and on TV 2s Pulp Comedy.

Delighted to be performing at Bats, they’d hate you to miss out, so book now for a night out with R30!
