3 of NZ’s top musicians To Join Cosmic Shambles Live!

JON TOOGOOD, HOLLIE SMITH AND LAWRENCE ARABIA CONFIRMED TO JOIN COSMIC SHAMBLES LIVE!

We can’t keep it in the bag any longer!
Cosmic Shambles LIVE bring their one-night-only tasting menu of witty stand-up, fascinating scientific explorations and big name musicians to Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch this April!
The UK roadshow have booked three of NZ’s top musicians to perform short sets as part of their eclectic line-up!

Hollie Smith, one of NZ’s best loved singer-songwriters, will indulge Christchurch audiences with her powerful melodies and smooth vocals.

Lawrence Arabia will treat Auckland audiences to his sublime indie-pop melodies. This big-name musician has garnered worldwide attention with four CD’s under his belt!

Jon Toogood will rock out with his fellow Wellingtonians - revered around the country for his band’s Shihad and The Adults, Wellington audiences will revel in his stunning voice and seamless guitar work.

PLUS three more of NZ’s top brains are joining the fun!

Dr Siouxsie Wiles will amalgamate herself into the Auckland and Wellington shows.
An award-winning scientist and communicator who has made a career of manipulating nasty microbes, Wiles is also famed for her bright pink hairdo!

Shaun Hendy will jump on board the Wellington and Christchurch shows.
A physics whizz, award-winning science communicator, academic leader and author, Hendy encourages scientists to become advocates – inspiring the world with their fascinating discoveries.

Matt Stellingwerf will unite with his fellow comedians in all three NZ shows.
Matt’s razor-ship wit, award-winning banter, and intellectual story-telling has rocked comedy stages across Australia and NZ.

Comedian and self-proclaimed ‘interested idiot’ Robin Ince alongside comedian Josie Long will be hosting this ever-growing line-up of comedians, scientists and musicians from the UK and NZ. Kiwi names already confirmed are Dr Michelle Dickinson and James Nokise.
