FIVE International guest comedians in a 2 hour show, fully seated and licensed. That’s The Big Show - the ideal comedy festival party!
Since 2005 The Big Show has become one of the most popular shows in the annual NZ International Comedy Festival promising a line-up of 5 world class comedians each night in a two hour show.
In previous years audiences at The Big Show have been introduced to world class comedians such as Andy Parsons, Stephen K Amos, Mark Watson, Phil Nichol, Jason Cook, Neil Delamere, Carey Marx, Terry Alderton, Milton Jones and many more.
The Big Show 2013, opening Monday 6 May for 12 nights, is no exception with a fresh line-up of international comedy stars including;
Markus Birdman (England) - A veteran of five Edinburgh Fringe fests - “the all-round package; witty, controversial, hip, topical and silly” The BBC
James Acaster (England) - 2012 Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee - “one of the sharpest comic minds to have emerged in recent years.” The Guardian UK
Andrew Bird (England) - “Absolutely charming. A great storyteller. Funny, likeable and effortless” Time Out UK
Stuart Goldsmith (England) - Definitely one to watch following three critically acclaimed solo shows over the last 3 Edinburgh Fringe Fests.
With special guest MC, Mickey D (Australia) – One of the most popular international comedians to visit our Comedy Festival winning the NZ Comedy Guild award for Best International Guest in 2008 and 2009. Back for the first time in three years following his continued success in the UK.
