5 Star Comedy Preview 2014: 9 International Guest Comedians

The 5 Star Comedy Preview 2014
Nine International guest Comedians packed in to one huge 2 hour show

A swag of fresh faces join a few favourites from last year for one of the most eagerly awaited shows in the annual NZ International Comedy Festival featuring nine international comedians, providing a taste of things to come, in a 2 hour+ showcase.

Fresh faces in the ‘5 Star’ in 2014 include;

John Robins (England) – A veteran of 5 Edinburgh Fringe fests – “One of the most naturally gifted comedians I’ve seen” – Daily Telegraph UK

John Gordillo (England) ‘One of comedy’s great thinkers. Heartfelt, intellectual or angry, he’s dynamite!’ THE TIMES

Michael Legge (Ireland) "This is vitriolic observational stand-up at its finest ...The language is perfectly judged, with some beautifully splenetic turns of phrase. And the effect of all this impassioned negativity is, ironically, quite joyous" Chortle.co.uk

Sara Pascoe (England) “Pascoe's lively mind teases out big questions with intelligence, silliness and self-deprecation to make a near-perfect show” The Guardian UK

Tim FitzHigham (England) “Tim FitzHigham is unhinged. He is completely without hinges.”Eddie Izzard

Carl Donnelly (England) – 2013 Edinburgh Comedy Award – ‘Best Show’ Nominee

They will be joined on stage at the 5 Star by the return of some of the headliners from the 2013 Festival including James Acaster, Markus Birdman and the MC for the show, Stuart Goldsmith, all from the UK.

All these acts will be appearing in a variety of shows throughout the festival including their own award winning solo shows but the ‘5 Star Comedy Preview’ is a rare opportunity to see them altogether on the same stage.
