The Philippines most celebrated entertainer has arrived!

Johnny Tan ignited a sensation in Manilla in the late 70s, and he hasn't stopped bringing the WOW since.

From cruise ships to international lottery TV appearances, he has done it all.

And this year, as a part of the 2011 NZ Intl Comedy Festival, Johnny Tan will be bringing his highly celebrated and recently concocted “Variety Variety Show” here to Wellington.

The problem is, he's forgotten his wife.

Join an amazing night of laughter and memories as Wellington's favourite (and only) masked Mexican wrestler brings together a stellar evening of friends and entertainers to pay tribute to one of Southeast Asia's unsung heros, Mr Johnny Tan.

An exciting night of comedy, stories, and memories featuring Jerome Chandrahasen, Jim Stanton, Sarah Harpur and a galaxy of others.

Hosted by El Jaguar.
All monies raised go toward bringing Wife over to NZ.
