Rule Of Three

Back

ruleofthree_470x270.jpg 

Good things come in threes, like little pigs, dimensions and occasionally nipples. And, quite often, comedians.

Combining shrewd musical comedy, sharp one-liners and surreal ranting, this trio bring their contrasting styles together for a show with more than two kinds of funny. But less than four.

Raw Comedy Quest winner Maarten Idema joins runner-up James Stewart and standout Becky Crouch for a showcase with three very unique comedic voices.

Call it a dysfunctional laugh triangle.

Critics Review

Ben Blackman - Keeepingupwithnz.com'4 Stars - Rule of Three is a show delivered by three individual comedians, Becky Crouch, Martin Idema and James Stewart an all local line-up that should not be missed in this year’s NZ International Comedy Festival. All three performers shook up the Raw Comedy Talent Quest in 2013, and after last night’s show it was not surprising why.'open/close
An anonymous English comedian advised all at his show to go and see some of our more obscure local talent, assuring us that there were some gems in the programme. I found one. Actually no, I was assigned to one but I will claim it nonetheless.

Rule of three is a show delivered by three individual comedians, Becky Crouch, Martin Idema and James Stewart an all local line-up that should not be missed in this year’s NZ International Comedy Festival. All three performers shook up the Raw Comedy Talent Quest in 2013, and after last night’s show it was not surprising why.

All three offer their own unique styles of vertical-human-delivered humour. I spent the night trying to figure out the best order of appearance. Turns out, this was fruitless, entirely pointless and it was James Stewart who began proceedings and he was funny as. James is bald and has a beard which makes him being funny a strange thing to witness; he talked about being 36 years old and childless, his fear of holding babies and fart politics. Following James was Maarten Imeda whose routine consisted of one liners and clever puns which had our corner of the room wobbling with pre-giggles and burst laughter. His low-intensity, slightly monotone delivery hit the spot in some of the drier areas of the room.

The two lads set the night up perfectly for Becky Crouch, a raging lesbian singer-songwriter, knower of six chords, beastly stalker comedian woman. Becky sang some songs for us, and in addition to her marvellous comedy skills she has a remarkable singing voice which may or may not be attributed to her powerful tongue. For lovers of NZ comedy these three are going to be big ,so get down to the Q theatre and check it out.
