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.

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
