Jarred Christmas (NZ/UK)
One of NZ's funniest exports is back home full of passion and charisma. Jarred has starred on TV3's 7 Days, Funny Roots, Comedy Convoy and TVNZ's Year in the Life!

"Likeable, intelligent and full of unpredictable energy" The Scotsman
Urzila Carlson (SA/NZ)
After unsuccessfully trying to convince several African nations for three decades that she is in fact African royalty, Urzila decided to move to New Zealand where the people are easy going and more inclined to believe her lies. As seen on TV3's hit show 7 Days. "One of the best" NZ Herald
Ian D Montfort (UK)
Straight from recording a series at the BBC, Montfort is a psychic medium (comedium) loved by believers

Strap in as they regale you with twisted tales of debauchery & depravity, naughty balloon modelling, buppetry, and, of course, original songs & sharp vocals.
