LAUNCHING - Indigo Comedy Wednesdays

LAUNCHING
Indigo Comedy Wednesdays

8pm Wednesday August 1st 2001

Enjoyed the laugh festival, want more? Very Serious Productions and Indigo
Bar and venue present Indigo “Comedy Wednesdays”. The cream of Wellington’s stand-up comedians are back. See the old hands at the stand-up game alongside the stylings of a new crop of local young talent.

If you enjoyed Pulp Comedy or the TV2 international LAUGH! Festival, then your Wednesdays are going to be filled up from now on. Featuring such stars as Sully O’Sullivan, Nigel Corbett, Flight of the Conchords, Michael Shadbolt,
and Fiona Mackinnon, these shows are full of belly laughing, side splitting (and other various “laughing" clichés) fun!

Organiser Ben Hurley says “Auckland has had regular stand-up nights for several years, and now boasts New Zealand’s only dedicated comedy venue, it’s time Wellington fought back. People in Wellington are starved of good regular stand-up, so we’re going to feed them”.

Indigo Comedy Wednesdays start on August the 1st and continue on the first
and third Wednesday of every month. So take off your politically correct
hats, you’re long earrings and Gucci suits and come to Indigo to laugh the
winter blues away.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
