This event has probably been and gone!
Comedy like you’ve never seen it before! Ben Hurley brings the laughs along with special guests Donna Brookbanks and David Correos, in a night you’re not going to want to miss. Book now as this will sell out!
Ben has conquered the toughest of crowds and reviewers alike and is adept at tailoring his material and persona to what the event requires. He consistently sells out shows at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival, most recently when his show “22 Rants About F*ck” had to be moved from a 120 to a 450 seat venue. Ben is widely recognized from his regular appearances on THREE’s 7Days, and The Project.
He has had numerous other TV appearances with several Comedy Galas, AotearoHa, After Hours, Funny Roots, @Seven and hosting the 2010 New Zealand Music Awards. 2019 sees Ben continuing as Head Writer for 7Days and touring various arts festivals with his band performing the “22 Rants About F*ck”.
Donna is the proper business. A founding member of the incredibly successful Snort, 2018 and 2019 Billy T Award nominee and fast becoming an absolute legend in the industry, Donna has it all. Her previous shows, “Cat Lady In Waiting” and “You Do You Babes” have been sell out successes at the NZ International Comedy Festival. Notorious Comedy Management is proud to be working with her, and know that this comedy star is just going to keep rising. “A joyous eruption of chaos, energy and laughter” - The Ruminator. She has smashed it at the Comedy Store in Sydney and toured her shows around the country. This isn’t a case of one to watch, this is someone who is nailing it already.
Winner of the 2016 Billy T Award, David is quickly becoming a powerhouse of New Zealand comedy. He has a uniquely powerful, boundary pushing style which has made him an audience favourite whenever he performs. Already on our TV screens (7Days, AotearoHA, TVNZ’s Stand Up), we are expecting big things from David. In a world of standard stand up, he shines through as a energetic and highly entertaining comic. Often leaving audiences thinking “what did I just see?”, the inevitable leaning towards your friends saying “Bloody hell!”, he quite simply has to be seen to be believed. After a successful run with Matt Stellingwerf at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, David has returned twice with his solo shows “The Correos Effect” and “Better Than I Was The Last Time”. Watch out for him performing at a myriad of festivals in 2020.
