Get on board – riotous and relentless, the Comedy Convoy is back with vengeance!
As seen on last year’s TV3’s Comedy Convoy special, this two-hour showcase brings the best international & local comedy stars direct to your town, and promises to be crammed with laughs.
Jeremy Corbett takes a short break from hosting TV3's hugely successful 7 Days. After being crowned as AFTA’s Best Presenter (Entertainment), Jeremy takes to the driver's seat and puts the pedal to the metal to bring the laughs to you with the 2012 Comedy Convoy.
"His effortless delivery and comic timing had everyone in stitches from within moments he walked on until the cheers at the end” – TVNZ
Fellow TV3's 7 Days regular Urzila Carlson has exploded on to the kiwi comedy scene. Urzila took to the stage in 2008 and has since been piling up awards including NZ Comedy Guild’s Best Female Comedian (2010 & 2011).
“Carlson’s material is fantastic” Dylan Moran, TV3
France’s premiere misanthropist Marcel Lucont shares his disdainful opinions as he returns to New Zealand, after selling-out his 2011 Comedy Festival season. Earning plaudits for his shows in Australia and the UK, Lucont’s performances are riddled with crisp, dry wit and cutting observations. To miss it, you are basically an idiot (his words, not ours).
“Flawless… A Comedy Festival pearl” - NZ Herald
The UK’s Gordon Southern hits kiwi shores after headlining the “Best of the Edinburgh Fest” at the Adelaide Fringe. Gordon knows how to deliver upbeat and energetic observational comedy.
"Southern presents a breezy, bright and exuberant show that zips along, utterly engaging the audience, entertaining and educating them...” – punch.com.au
Considered NZ’s #1 character impressionist Simon McKinney’s fun and generous style of quirky comedy charms one and all.
“McKinney is one of the finest New Zealand comics we have - armed with his array of accents and facial movement, he reduced the crowd to near hysteria” – TVNZ
