Bringing the Big Laughs to Kiwi Hot Spots!

New Zealand Comedy Trust presents
2degrees Comedy Convoy
Touring to seven NZ hotspots from 18 – 28 May

Look out! The 2degrees Comedy Convoy is headed your way with a global crew of five ready to get you grinning like a Cheshire cat. A part of the 2016 NZ International Comedy Festival powered by Flick Electric Co., this show is sure to be a busload of big laughs and great stories. Bring along your mates for an unforgettable two-hours of stand up! Get in quick for early-bird ticket specials (limited number available).

Hilarious French raconteur, Marcel Lucont will host the evening in his renowned laconic style. The line-up features a top selection of the Comedy Festival’s favourites including much-loved American cowboy Wilson Dixon, super-dry Welshman Lloyd Langford, two-time Fred Award finalist Jamie Bowen, and Angela Barnes from the UK, whom Sarah Millican rates as“Brilliantly funny”.

Marcel Lucont (France): French flânuer Marcel brings his deadpan wit, sordid musings and Gallic superiority to host you on this wonderful comedic journey. He’ll ensure your evening is first rate. “A raconteur, poet and chansonnier extraordinaire. Did we have a good time Marcel Lucont? Merde oui!”Stuff.co.nz

Wilson Dixon (USA): Charismatic American Cowboy Wilson Dixon will win you over with his dulcet country tones, charming Southern accent and super dry wit. “Deadpan delivery of some of the funniest songs you’ll ever hear” – Time Out, UK

Jamie Bowen (NZ): He’ll bring his manic energy to the stage, delivering top-notch stand-up with heart and soul. “Honestly one of New Zealand’s greatest stand-ups” – TVNZ

Angela Barnes (UK): Wonderfully funny and delightful British comic and ex-nurse, Angela has appeared on screens around the world including Russell Howard’s Good News and Eddie Izzard’s Laughs in the Park. "A gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic" – The Guardian, UK

Lloyd Langford (Wales): This Welshman will have you in stitches with his wickedly sharp wit, hilarious storytelling and observations. “One of the sharpest comedic minds on the circuit” – The Guardian, UK
