Fancy a night out of pure comedy gold with your friends and workmates?

They’ve been around for five years and it’s about time that they had a bit of a night out! With a proud community built around a stunning array of comedians – Creeping Charlie invites Auckland audiences to The Creeping Charlie Showcase, as part of the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival.

Creeping Charlie manages some of the biggest names in New Zealand comedy – so for one night only on the 30th April, they've brought together their collective under one roof at Q Theatre!

Performing (with a hint of bragging also in this list) for your viewing pleasure will be none other than:

- Wilson Dixon, Cripple Creek, Colorado’s country music legend who has been a sell-out success every time he hops the fence from music to comedy – with a smattering of music in there also.

- Nick Rado, 2011 Billy T Award nominee and 2013 Comedy Guild winner “Best Show” for his sell out season of The Funniest Joke In The World

- Urzila Carlson, TV3 “People’s Choice Award” winner at the 2013 NZ International Comedy Festival, NZ Comedy Guild winner, “Best Female Comedian” 2010, 2011 and 2012. NZ Comedy Guild “Best Newcomer” 2008.

- Rhys Mathewson, Billy T Award winner 2010, NZ Comedy Guild winner “Best Male Comedian” 2010, NZ International Comedy Festival award “Best Newcomer” 2009, NZ Comedy Guild winner “Best Newcomer” 2009.

- Ewen Gilmour, Billy T Award winner 1997, NZ Comedy Guild “Decade Achievement Award”, 2012 “Variety International Presidential Citation”, 2013 “Worst Dressed Man” winner (he’s stoked about this one. Seriously)
