7 international guest comedians packed in to one huge 2-hour show. It is one of the most eagerly awaited shows in the annual NZ International Comedy Festival providing punters with a taste of things to come over the following 3 weeks.

In 2013 the ‘5 Star Comedy Preview’ introduces a host a brand new flavours, some scouted from the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe, the world biggest live comedy festival.

Who’s who in 2013:
Tom Gleeson (Australia): One of Melbourne’s finest and a popular trans-Tasman guest on TV3’s top rating ‘7 Days’ show.

Markus Birdman (England): A veteran of 5 Edinburgh Fringe fests - “the all-round package; witty, controversial, hip, topical and silly” - The BBC.

Elis James (Wales): One of Britain's finest emerging talents, combining story-telling, characters and straight stand-up with the charming delivery that has made James such a favourite on the British comedy circuit.

James Acaster (England): 2012 Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee - “one of the sharpest comic minds to have emerged in recent years.” - The Guardian UK

Andrew Bird (England): “Absolutely charming. A great storyteller. Funny, likable and effortless” - Time Out UK

Stuart Goldsmith (England): Definitely one to watch following 3 critically acclaimed solo shows over the last 3 Edinburgh Fringe Fests.

Chris Martin (England): Very popular on debut here in the 2012 Festival, back with a new show in 2013 and looking forward to catching up with a growing legion of fans.

All these acts will be appearing in a variety of shows throughout the festival including their own award winning solo shows but the ‘5 Star Comedy Preview’ is a rare opportunity to see them altogether on the same stage.
