Dee-lightful. Jack Stays One More Night

Dee-lightful. Jack Stays One More Night

/

“…turns grumpiness into an art form”
The Evening Standard

AUCKLAND SKYCITY THEATRE
SOLD OUT WEDNESDAY 1ST MAY 7PM
**NEW SHOW** THURSDAY 2nd MAY 7PM
TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

Proving he’s a hot ticket at this year’s NZ International Comedy Festival, with his first show completely selling out, Jack Dee will now perform a second show, Thursday 2nd May 7pm at SkyCity Theatre.

After a six year absence from stand-up, he’s back, agonizing over the slightest of annoyances and misdemeanors. Although he’s a man of few smiles, Jack Dee’s deadpan, dry humour has made him one of Britain’s favourite comedians.

During his short stand-up-hiatus Jack appeared on shows like QI and Never Mind The Buzzcocks, co-wrote and starred in four series of BBC 2’s hit sitcom Lead Balloon and wrote his memoirs, Thanks For Nothing.

Why is he touring again? “I want to spend less time with my family” says Jack.

TICKETS ARE ALREADY SELLING FAST! SO DON’T MISS OUT - PURCHASE YOURS TODAY!

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
