Pity the Fool
Pity the Fool
Don't miss out, don't be a fool - missing the last 3 comedy shows at BATS is the last thing you wanna do! That and making really lame rhymes...
Opening on Tuesday night at 8pm is Funk Rabbit, giving us fresh comedy with an old school funk. International improv comedy duo Funk Rabbit hail from Canada. They have made Wellington their home, beginning their journey together with Comedy in the Pit last year, so don't miss their slot in the Comedy Festival!
(Not) The All India Radio Show opens at 9.30pm on Tuesday, presenting a comic ‘live news show’. Complete with sensationalist headlines, the culturally sensitive human interest stories, the election campaign advertisements…it's all reinterpreted here for your subversive comic delight.
Opening at 6.30pm on Wednesday night, see Tim and Andy: An Adventure. Out of work actor Tim spends most of his time watching daytime soaps while Andy slaves away at Subway. Find out if the the fragile ecosystem of their mutual tolerance will survive when Andy is cast in the new Subway TV commercial....Check out the trailer here for a taste of what's to come.

Have you ever lost a friend? Have you ever been so poor you couldn't afford a front door knob? Ever had to break up with a girl in a wheelchair while keeping within the boundaries of political-correctness? Or had your dreams of becoming a Subway poster-boy shattered by your egotistical flatmate? Tim and Andy have.
Join Nic Sampson and Joseph Moore for a solid hour of all of the above.
Win! Win! Win! "What can I win?", I hear you say. Only a double pass to see Tim and Andy: An Adventure of course! And what an adventure that will be. To be in the draw, just tell us who stars in this show.
