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!
