UK Comedian Sara Pascoe’s Season Sold Out!

UK Comedian Sara Pascoe’s Season Sold Out!


Extra Show Due to Public Demand

“It is a rare thing for an international guest comedian to sell out their season prior to opening, but, with only a handful of seats left for her 5 night season at Q Theatre we have had to add an extra show next Saturday” says local promoter Scott Blanks of comedy.co.nz productions.

Tickets go on sale today at 10am
For ‘Sara Pascoe vs The Truth’
At Q Theatre, 305 Queen St on Sat 17 May at 8:45pm

Bookings at www.qtheatre.co.nz <http://www.qtheatre.co.nz> / Ph 3099771


Sara Pascoe’s New Zealand International Comedy Festival journey began in The 5-Star Comedy Preview line-up - “Sara Pascoe was a standout at the 5 Star Comedy Preview" - NZ Herald.

And this from her Wellington season:
“Sara Pascoe is one of the best stand-up comedians I have ever seen . . . lovely balance between the self-confident and the self-effacing. I highly recommend this show.” theatreview.co.nz

Sara Pascoe Vs The Truth: Nothing in life is certain. Everything we believe is subjective. Evidence can be manipulated by predispositions and prejudices. You could just be a brain in a lab being stimulated by electrical impulses? Or, if each cell in your body is replaced over time, maybe you are not even you anymore, like the Sugababes?

Sara Pascoe has starred on BBC's Twenty Twelve, Live at the Apollo, C4's Stand Up for the Week and Live at the Comedy Store on Comedy Central.
She has also appeared as a panelist on Q.I. with Stephen Fry
Despite all this, she cannot be absolutely sure that she exists.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
