Tim and Andy:
An Adventure

What are friends really for? Why are doorknobs so expensive in this modern age? How do you break up with someone in a wheelchair for reasons purely to do with personality, while keeping within the boundaries of political correctness?

Tim and Andy: An Adventure is a devised comedy that takes us inside the hopelessly funny, trivial world of two social outcasts.

There is no doorknob on the outside of their Newtown flat. Aspiring actor, Tim, uses this as an excuse to avoid auditions and to stay at home all day watching TV, waiting for his flatmate Andy to come home ... so he can let him in. While Tim is oafish and self-absorbed, Andy is a diligent and generous soul who enjoys toiling away at the local Subway sandwich bar, hoping one day to don the maroon manager’s cap of success. The fragile ecosystem within which these misfits live is shattered when Andy lands a role in a Subway commercial, catapulting him into quasi-stardom and Tim into a jealous rage that could end their life-long friendship. The show features live performances inside a giant cardboard TV set, live music, and live wig use.

Tim and Andy: An Adventure is devised and performed by Nic Sampson and Joseph Moore. Nic and Joseph met at primary school and have been performing together on stage, ever since Nic finally acknowledged that Joseph existed. While still at Wellington College they formed the popular comedy band Guns N Moses, who toured extensively around the local girls schools. Nic went on to steal all their material for his short-lived solo career.

They've also done stuff on their own. Nic was nominated for a Chapman Tripp award for his performance in Ken Duncum's Picture Perfect at the Circa Theatre in 2006. He was a finalist in the 2007 Raw Comedy Quest in Auckland. On screen he starred in the Disney's Power Rangers Mystic Force as the yellow one. Later this year he'll be seen in the fantasy-western - Laundry Warrior, also starring Geoffrey Rush.

Joseph played the oft ridiculed Bastabus in Danny Mulheron and Tom Scott's TV Series, Seven Periods with Mr. Gormsby. In 2008 he will be seen during the first two minutes of Disney's epic, Prince Caspian as the dastardly bully.
