As part of the 2007 Class Comedians programme, fourteen young comedic talents were plucked out of their classrooms and thrust in front of an audience of hundreds to stand up, and make 'em laugh. This year this assorted potpourri of comedians, now aptly named 'The AdLOLescents' return with their sophomore festival showcase, 'High School Comical'.

Consisting of Steven Boyce, James Watson, Anna Maclean, Rose Matafeo, Courtney Willett, John Shen, Mahmood 'Moody' Hikmet, Aleks Bozic, Hemanth Nair, Geneva Alexander-Masters and Daniel Bakie, these teens hail from the North, South, East and West of Auckland. Their ages vary from 16 to 18 years of age, but don't let their youthful charm fool you. These young'uns are pretty clued up, and this time round are having a crack at producing the entire show themselves. They're back, nowolder, wiser and funnier, ready to dazzle this year's festival crowd.

This eclectic group of talented teens came into being after a two week comedy boot camp at the beginning of 2007. After one on one mentoring and tutelage with respected members of the local comedy scene, these kids were well prepared for their first festival showcase. Performing to a sell out audience in the Crunchie Comedy Chamber gave them their first taste of the stand up stage. Naturally, most of them were hooked soon after. Many graduates of the programme featured in RAW open mic nights at The Classic throughout the year, honing their skills and testing out new material.

Their vast range of comedic stylings are sure to tickle the funny bones of every person of any audience. With seven comedians each night, this show is an unmissable opportunity to see the future of NZ Comedy, so make like Kris Kristofferson and watch these stars be born.

(The jokes in the actual show will be at least 3 times funnier than that one).
