ROFLYAO = Rolling on floor laughing your ass off . . .

Sam Spooner and Ben Kettell will be bringing tag team stand-up comedy to the New Zealand Comedy Festival for the first time ever in the show “LoL”.

The jokes are not set in stone, or told in one straight sitting. Ben and Sam tag in and tag out depending on the feel of the crowd.

Running back and forth on and off stage with jokes that link, hilarious retorts, there own personal heckles, and feeding off each other energy to make the laughs harder and faster than ever before.

Thus the show is a show for the high-tech generation mixing multimedia skits, wrestling parody and tag team comedy together, into an entertaining hour filled with lots of bright flashy images, jokes, fast movements and even a bit of a song.

Themes such as ADD, popular culture, Dragon Ball Z, the Police, Growing up in your parents shadow, and getting caught shaving your pubes are just a few of the golden gems that will be devolved.
While aimed at a generation of net savvy people anyone can enjoy a laugh as it’s incredibly relatable, especially to the average person’s life.

As stand-up comedians, Sam Spooner and Ben Kettell are both Comedy Festival virgins and don’t fit into the standard mould of a ‘normal' comic. So this show will showcase there talents in there own unique way.

Ben is a hardworking up and comer who has been on the circuit for three years. Ever since first seeing ‘The Big Howick Giggle’ back when in 2002, he has dreamed of being in the festival. A regularly talent for ConArtist and top talent on the rookie circuit Ben will show off what he is made of and impress everyone.

Sam was the first ever class comedian. He had a bright future following that with work on Classic TV and regular spots at the Classic Comedy Bar. Yet disaster struck years back after he was diagnosed with a potentially deadly tumour. Now it’s fully removed Sam is fully clean (as clean as a tube up the penis can possibly be) and ready to his position in the comedy world.

Together Ben and Sam intend to shock the world with there comedy talent, and original show concept showing the future of New Zealand comedy is bright.

The perfect show if you keen to have a ‘LOL’ or even let out a ‘ROFL’

Show duration: 1 hour.
