International Comic Heaveyweight To Hit NZ For First Time

International Comic Heaveyweight To Hit NZ For First Time

Following sellout tours of the UK and critically acclaimed performances around the world, Reginald D Hunter – one of the UK’s most popular stand up comedians – is proud to make his debut this year at the 2014 New Zealand International Comedy Festival from 29 April – 3 May.

In the fifteen years since he began performing, Reginald D Hunter has become one of the UK Comedy Industry’s best-known and most distinctive performers. His work is often brutally honest, frequently controversial but always meticulously measured and thought out.

“Reginald D Hunter joins the top rank of stand-up comedians working today…a comedian going for broke, flying in the face of received opinion in a way that is simply exhilarating…this is comedy of a rare scope.” The Times

Reginald’s debut in New Zealand will see him present an hour's set with performances in both Auckland and Wellington.

Originally from Albany, Georgia, Reginald has resided in the UK for over a decade and is a well known face on Television and the UK Comedy Circuit. His popularity has lead to him being invited to perform in venues around the world in places such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, South Africa, America and Australia.

He is one of the few comics to have been nominated for a Perrier Award three years running at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and is a regular guest on iconic British television shows including Live at the Apollo, The Graham Norton Show, Have I Got News For You and 8 Out of 10 Cats.

The Sunday Times said, “His presence and intelligence make him one of the most brilliantly unpredictable comics”, whilst the Independent wrote that his material is “Sharp enough to burst balloons”.

Make sure you don’t miss the unique and razor-sharp comedy of Reginald D. Hunter in his New Zealand debut.

As part of the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival in cahoots with Old Mout Cider, grab some mates and join us for a great night of laughs from 24 April - 18 May.
