Jammin' With The Billy's


New Zealand Comedy Trust presents
BILLY T JAMS

The NZ International Comedy Festival is kicking off the comedy year on Wednesday 5 February at Q Theatre with BILLY T JAMS. The five nominees for 2014 will showcase why they’ve earned their nomination for the most sought after comedy award for emerging comedians; the Billy T Award.

"This was an evening to be proud of as these young comedians who have shown that the high quality of our up-and-coming comedy talent is not to be ignored!" - [2013 Billy T Jams] Keeping Up With NZ

Hosted by 2012 Billy T Award recipient Guy Williams, the night is set to be a hilarious taster of the hottest up-and-coming comedians on the NZ scene. The nominees set to grace the Rangatira stage are; Tim Batt, Brendon Green, Jamaine Ross, Guy Montgomery, and Stephen Witt.

Rounding out the night will be none other than our 2013 Billy T Award winner Rose Matafeo whose alternative comedy style is being showcased on Jono & Ben at Ten.

Billy T James changed the face of comedy in this country, forging a hugely successful career out of making people laugh. To celebrate his memory and achievements, the New Zealand Comedy Trust created the annual Billy T Award to support up-and-coming comedians with the outstanding potential to take their comedy career to the next level.

The nominees for the 2014 Billy T Award were selected on their proven comedic ability; talent; dedication; current form and potential, and will be judged on all aspects of their 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival show. Final performances and judging will take place at Last Laughs, on Sunday 18 May 2014.

Join us and be the first to see what this exciting new generation of brilliant comedians have got to offer.

Forty or fifty years ago nobody really had any idea of what the selectors had in mind.
