R30 presents


Stand Up Comedy for Those Who Would Rather Have a Nice Lie Down

This year’s ODDFELLOWS New Zealand International Comedy Festival features a show for people who know how to take their pleasures seriously. R30, Stand Up Comedy for Those Who Would Rather Have A Nice Lie Down, comes to BATS after a run of successful gigs in the Wellington region. Five comedians “of a certain age” bring you laughs to warm those cooler nights.

Fifi Colston, Cathie Sheat, Lynne Smith, Caroline Waltz and Lorraine Ward combine to make a powerhouse of mirth. Their talents include acting, storytelling, Drag Kings, World of Wearable Arts, and stand up comedy. Their unique slants on life have graced many stand up shows around New Zealand and beyond, including Sweetwaters Festival, Melbourne Comedy Festival and TV2s Pulp Comedy. These funny women meet to brainstorm comic inspirations, show off cross-stitch or knitting creations – and swap sex stories, because they still can.

Delighted to be performing BATS, these comedians will tickle your torsos, surprise your senses and warm your winter bones. Show starts at 6.30 pm, so after all the laughs you’ll still have time to go home and slip into your jim-jams with a cuppa.

Get out your cosy slippers and pyjamas. Fill your hottie and make a nice cup of tea. Open a can of condensed milk and eat it with a spoon. Be a devil and let the cat in for a night in front of the fire. Or book now for a night out with R30 at BATS!

Dates: Thursday 18 May – Saturday 20 May 2006, 6.30pm

Venue: Bats Theatre, 1 Kent Tce, Wellington City

Tickets: Adults $16, Conc./Groups 10+ $12

Bookings: BATS (04) 802 4175 or
