Late Laughs

Media release: for immediate release

New Zealand Comedy Trust presents
LATE LAUGHS

Hosted by Jamie Bowen, James Nokise or Rhys Mathewson

WHERE LAUGHS ARE MADE FROM LATE-NIGHT ANTICS

It’s comedy – but not as we know it, Jim.

Late Laughs is your weekend late-night fix of Festival shenanigans during the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival in cahoots with Old Mout Cider. The rulebook is thrown out the window and, as clichéd as it may sound, anything goes!

Festival comedians from across the board guest-star in these late night, no holds barred events, where the gloves are off and there is no censor; leading to unpredictable, comical debauchery.

Top local and international comedians wrestle with themselves mentally and others physically, and deliver some of the Festival’s most unexpected and memorable moments. Heavyweight MCs Jamie Bowen, James Nokise and 2011 Billy T Award winner Rhys Mathewson (back from the UK) act as revolving referees as the carnage unfolds before the audience.

In a nutshell – this is where shit gets loose.

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.

Werewolf: Music Criticism As A Dating Metaphor

Music criticism can be just another form of consumer advic... Yet ever since pop music criticism first entered the media mainstream it has played a wider role, too. Rather than a decree with a numerical score attached, this kind of criticism functions more like travel notes. A conversation, even a form of seduction. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Rushing For Gold

The first section focuses particularly on the Victorian connections – commercial, legal, mining and personal, including migration statistics. But for me the most interesting chapters were in the middle sections about the people of the goldfields. More>>

Comedy Festival Review: VOTE BATT

The political campaigning in the US over the last eight months or so has provided a stark insight into how far political candidates are willing to go. This background came into focus as “former comedian” – now politician – Tim Batt ushered people up into the front seats, passing out badges and taking photographs with his not entirely adoring public...
