The Comedy Festival is around the corner and I'm fizzing at the bung. It's going to be an exciting time for everyone involved. I've started resting my laugh muscles, my eyes and my liver so I'm fully prepared for the three weeks of good times.
This years Billy T nominees are so good that I feel sorry for the judges. I'm in the process of making a to-watch list for this festival. Who needs sleep when there are so many amazing shows to watch?
My advice; get a programme, get some post-its, make notes, start putting away your coffee money and go see as many shows as you can. If you can't figure it out by just reading the 72 word blurb in the Festival programme, go watch some line up shows, that's a brilliant way to find out who you would like to see for an hour.
Meanwhile, I'm putting the finishing touches on my new show Long Flight to Freedom
. It's all about moving here, and life in South Africe vs life in New Zealand. If the audience enjoys the show half as much as I enjoyed writing it, then I will be very happy.
Have a great festival, I will see you in it!
