Vic Uni to host 1999 University Comedy Comp

Vic Theatresports is proud to announce that the 1999 Comedy Comps will be
hosted by Victoria University.

This will be the first time in several years that Comedy Comps have been
held in Wellington.

Confirmed attendees this year include teams from Auckland, Waikato, Massey and Canterbury Universities, who will compete and perform over three nights in three exciting comedy events.

Comedy Comps 1999 kicks off on Thursday 2 September with the Standup Comedy Night - featuring some very talented rookie comics from each campus, as well as performances from a couple of Wellington's finest pro comics.

Hot on the heels of the standup is the Sketch Comedy Night on Friday 3 September - in which teams from each University get 25 minutes to go crazy with the scripted stuff. Watch out for celebrity judges!

Finally, on Saturday 4 September the Theatresports Night brings Comedy Comps to a close with a furious and frenetic festival of competitive improvised entertainment where there can be only one winning team.

Venues for the various nights are still being confirmed, as are major sponsors.

Max Rashbrooke Review: Mahler 7 - NZSO

Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony may be one of the least well-known of its ilk, but Edo de Waart and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra made a compelling case for a reassessment. They showed us a work of immense variety, surprising contrast and delicate shades of light and dark. More>>
