Roller skates, big hair and a new breed of dance called ‘tap-hop’ are what will make Medium Rare the tastiest show of the NZ International Comedy Festival in 2008.

When people graduate from The Classic’s well known rookie night ‘RAW’ they become…Medium Rare comedians . . . sizzling away in the comedy skillet, resting atop the flames of the industry primus, hoping that one day they will be well-cooked, well-seasoned professionals, rather than a flash-in-the-pan.

Medium Rare features the talent of the gasp-worthy, gallivanting Rhys Mathewson. It is only fitting that a playboy like Rhys should be supported by two of the hottest Wellington women of comedy: a compliment to his frantic style in the quiet radiance of Dominique Lecchi and a break from the norm in the phenomenally talented, acerbic humorist Jim Stanton (yes, it is a boy’s name, but she is all woman!).

With each of this dynamic trio boasting their own accolades you can be assured you will witness three of the keenest young guns in Kiwi comedy!

Rhys Mathewson
- Best Newcomer NZCG Awards '07
- National Finalist with commendation, RAW Quest '07

Jim Stanton
- Runner Up, Most Feminine Jim NZ Pageant ‘07

Dom Lecchi
- Top Five Finalist, Wellington Comedy Club Rookie Comp ‘07

Tastier than a plate of hot cheerios and more refreshing than a glass of L&P on a hot summer’s day Rhys, Jim and Dom present a bright, juicy, nut-packed showcase filled with song, dance and stand up that will find you salivating for more.

This is the future of New Zealand Comedy.

Medium Rare – Less bloody than you think!

Show duration: 1 hour.
