Next Big Things - Hosted by Ben Hurley

Media release: for immediate release

The New Zealand Comedy Trust presents
NEXT BIG THINGS
HOSTED BY BEN HURLEY

You know that feeling when you go into a record store and discover something relatively new, incredible and not many people know about that band or musician yet?

Sorry, we’re in the digital age… let’s try that again.

You know that feeling when your Spotify playlist randomly plays a track by someone relatively new, incredible and not many people know about that band or musician yet? That’s the same sensation that the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival in cahoots with Old Mout Cider want to create for you with their Next Big Things.

Hosted by 2008 FRED Award winner, and someone who knows something special when he sees it, Ben Hurley (7 Days) hosts a selection of comedic talent that you may not have heard of yet, but who’ll definitely be on your radar after this!

Following the huge success of AotearoHA: Next Big Things after its broadcast on TV3, this next instalment promises an excitingly fresh line-up taking to the big stages of Q Theatre’s Rangatira in Auckland, and in the newly refurbished San Fran in Wellington.
Next Big Things is the event to introduce you and your mates to the comedy circuit’s unknown pleasures. Come as you are to this night of discovery.

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.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Pretence. No Bullshit. Fine Poem.

John Dickson doesn’t publish much; never has. Indeed, this new collection is his first such in 18 years. As he wryly and dryly states,
