Nicola Gunn, Benjamin Crellin, Al Pitcher

22 May 2006

Wassup in the hood ya'll,

You should really come see our 3 shows this week in the ODDFELLOWS NZ International Comedy Festival - they are all brilliant, judging by the reviews I've seen, and will entertain you immensely.

Where else would you find An Unfortunate Woman, the Dark Knight of New Zealand Comedy (Benjamin Crellin) and poor old Al Pitcher, who has no idea what accent he will speak in next?

AND there is a brilliant competition lurking in there too.

We best see you down here this week then!
