It’s the epic two-week comedy road trip that see’s the NZ International Comedy Festival cruising up and down the country – with our favourite ‘Westie’ Ewen Gilmour behind the wheel! The 2degrees Comedy Convoy brings you a top shelf selection of the best local and international comedy stars to 12 locations over 13 shows from 13 - 26 May! This 2-hour showcase will be crammed with laughs and a stonking line-up of talent.

Sitting in the passenger seats alongside the NZ Comedy Guild’s ‘Male Comedian of the Decade’ is Nelson born Guy Williams, last year’s Billy T Award winner and regular on TV3’s Jono & Ben at Ten. Expect May 20th to be a homecoming of sorts for the local boy, as the Convoy hits Nelson – demonstrating his rapid rise to stardom on the New Zealand comedy circuit.

They are joined by the winner of The Fred Award (2010), 7 Days regular and star of TV3’s comedy series Golden, Jesse Griffin – whose understated delivery and clever observational humour marks him as one of NZ’s most sought after performers.

Superstar mum and Aussie crack-up Fiona O’Loughlin makes her return after taking her story-based stand-up across the world. She’s also been all over the telly in Oz, featuring on; Rove, Celebrity Apprentice and Dancing With The Stars.

Representing the Brits on the Convoy this year is none other than Chris Martin* - bringing intelligent material to audiences, along side his own brand of playful, immature humour. Chris’s original social commentary, observations and anecdotes have become his trademark in recent years; so has being asked how Gwyneth is… less said, the better.
