Adapt Or Dai
Humans Are Awesome, Let’s Celebrate

After a year long hiatus Dai Henwood returns to the NZ International Comedy Festival with a brand new hour of stand up exploring the nature of humanity, examining how we beat ourselves up over things and explaining why we need to look at just how awesome we are.

The winner of both the Billy T and Fred Awards, Henwood has stood up with the best comics around the world with performances in Edinburgh, Tokyo, Melbourne and being asked to the invite only Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.

Well known for his role as team leader for Team Two on TV3’s 7Days, Henwood has been gracing our screens since the C4 cult hit, Insert Video Here. Since then he has gone onto host his own AotearoHA Christmas special, three years of hosting the NZ Music Awards and two seasons of his off the wall travel show, Roll The Dai.

Henwood’s foundation for comedy has always been live stand up however, and for Adapt Or Dai he has chosen a subject close to his heart. Humans.

He is genuinely one of the most positive people around and noticed that we’re being a bit too down on ourselves as a species. Sure we might have bunged up the environment, we’re a bit over weight and have a tendency to exploit and pillage everything we can, but sometimes we need to remind ourselves of all the awesome things we’ve created and all the awesome things we do. Lasers, pants, laughter, the list goes on.

“I’ve had a great time researching+ for this show”, says Henwood, “There’s so much potential subject matter, it’s a case of only the funniest and fruitiest bits making it in”

Returning to one of his favourite venues, the San Francisco Bathhouse in Wellington, and staging his first full show in the wonderful Rangatira at Q Theatre, 2013 promises another spectacular Henwood show with all the associated hilarity and good times.

Hang your negativity on the hook as you come in the door because this show is about the positive and the funny, a classic night of Henwood nonsense.

+Some researched “facts” may not strictly be actual “facts”
