Early evening Hurley show announced!

Due to the popularity of Ben Hurley’s show “Boom!” at this year’s NZ International Comedy Festival, organizers announced earlier today that an extra show has been added to the season.

“Boom!”will now play Saturday May 3rd at 5:30pm at The Classic Studio, Auckland, in addition to the original timeslot of 8:45pm.

This will be Auckland last chance to catch the comedian that London’s In Magazine touted as “one of the most exciting stand-up’s on the UK circuit…” before he starts his Wellington season on May 6th.
