Viva La Divas!

The NZ International Comedy Festival Presents
Lindauer Comedy Divas

Viva La Divas!

Though girl power may have faded much like the skimpy Union Jack dresses which became synonymous with the movement, female comedy is still as commanding as ever as this year’s Lindauer Comedy Divas event once again looks to show the men a thing or three.

This glamorous event has been a cornerstone of the NZ International Comedy Festival and has provided audiences with a stunning array of local and international comediennes. Once more hosted by the Queen Bee of New Zealand comedy, Michele A’Court on its opening night in Wellington on April 27th and in Auckland April 28th,, The Festivals all girl line up will feature an international host also, as Julia Morris crosses over the ditch from Australia for the second Auckland showcase on May 4th.

This year’s Lindauer Comedy Divas include Irene Pink, Justine Smith, Penny Ashton, Jan Maree, Diane Spencer, Emma Olsen, Jim Stanton, Caroline E Waltz and more, all vying to steal the spotlight away from their male counterparts in the Crunchie Comedy Chamber. The show will also feature special appearances from Scottish comedian Janey Godley in Auckland and direct from England, the 2006 If.comedy Best Newcomer Award Winner Josie Long.

In 2007, both Diva shows sold out, so make sure to grab your waterproof mascara, your girlfriends and manbags and enjoy a night out with laughs and bubbles, courtesy of the night’s sponsors, Lindauer, giving away goody bags for all and major prizes on the night.

Oh yes. It’s ladies night and the feeling’s more than right!
