The Everymen

CARIAD Ltd Presents

Award winning comedians Dai Henwood and Rhys Darby in


Have you ever wondered why women run New Zealand?

Dai Henwood and Rhys Darby bring their unique form of character comedy back to New Zealand for 10 shows over 2 cities.

Meet Benson Horimia, a rural lawyer putting the ‘Iwi’ in ‘Kiwi’ and Bill Napier, a park ranger with a no idea but a bloody good hat. These two along with a host of other characters give a glaring insight into the kiwi male.

In 2005 Rhys Darby won ‘Best international achievement’ at the NZ Comedy Guild awards and for the second year in a row Dai Henwood won ‘Best Male Comedian.’ Rhys has been gigging constantly in the U.K. with the Edinburgh and Glastonbury festivals under his belt. Dai has been touring from Tokyo Comedy Store to London with a bit of Australia thrown in just to keep it real.

After the sell-out success of “Swingball’ at the 2002 Wellington Fringe festival these two finally re-unite for a show that has fans salivating.

What the media have said about these two, “… side splitting …” Sunday Star Times “…wonderfully physical…” Capital Times.
