Tui Presents The Best of the Billys
COMEDIANS GET BETTER WITH AGE – YEAH RIGHT!
The NZ International Comedy Festival are delighted to invite Tui on board this year to host this uniquely kiwi comedy event. For the first time ever we bring together past winners of the esteemed ‘Billy T award’ awards for The BEST OF THE BILLYS Showcase.
The Billy T Award was inspired by and named after New Zealands’ much-loved Billy T James, and is now in its thirteenth year – a testament to the depth and history of comedy in NZ. The Award is an initiative of the NZ Comedy Trust and aims to ensure the continued growth of live comedy in NZ – and judging by this event’s line up, it has certainly achieved that!
The ‘Billy T Award’ has created a legacy for New Zealand comedians; previous winners include: Cal Wilson, Ewen Gilmour, Te Radar, Sugar and Spice, Philip Patson, Humourbeasts, Mike Loder, Paul Ego, Brendhan Lovegrove, Jan Maree, Ben Hurley, Dai Henwood, Sam Wills, Cori Gonzalez Macuer, mrs.peacock and Steve Wrigley.
On the 11th May – inaugural winner Ewen Gilmour will host a legendary line up that includes Dai Henwood, the lovable larrikin of New Zealand Comedy; Paul Ego, who is returning to the Festival stage after 9 years away; Brendhan Lovegrove, who will keep audiences on their toes with his quick wit; and the latest addition to the alumni – the fabulous Steve Wrigley.
Audiences can come and watch why these New Zealand comedians were the chosen ones Guaranteed award winning comedy.
