What a line up of kiwi talent!

Ed Caruthers

Ed Caruthers is a leading exponent of one-liner comedy.
He is known for his frightening gags-per-minute ratio and the quotability of his jokes, which are typically short, dark, and peculiar - like the man himself.

One of the few New Zealand comedians with extensive experience on the UK circuit, he has written for television and appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe and New Zealand International Comedy Festivals.
He also boasts an array of unconsummated NZ Comedy Guild Award nominations.

Tevita Manukia

The only Tongan Comedian working in the English speaking world today.

Sent here for schooling at 8 years old, Tevita grew up in a God fearing household that also happened to be a safe house for Tongan overstayers. Its in this environment his unique and very funny sense of humor was developed.

Andre King

Andre King has come home to these hallowed shores bearing tales of far away lands, strange customs and even stranger people.

In only six months, Andre went from 'unknown' to headlining the biggest clubs in the UK. After a couple of years he was sharing the stage with the likes of Jimmy Carr, Lee Evans and in November 2012 will be working with Bill Bailley in Jakarta.

Now based back in New Zealand, you can expect to see a lot more of Andre on television with a guest spot on Auckland Daze Season 2, as well as three TV projects in 2013.
In addition Andre will be touring with shows in the UK, Hong Kong, South Africa, India and New York.

Reviews:

"King is funny, witty and confident, his presence is as large as his suit!" Joseph Trotter - Three Weeks Edinburgh

"Endearing, hilariously caricatured impressions and accents. Comedy at it's most sincere and civilised!" Joanna Alpern - Broadway Baby Edinburgh 2012

"...stand up comedy of the highest caliber, devastatingly funny!" Lachlan MacIntyre - Cream of The Fringe Edinburgh

"Razor Sharp" Phuket Gazette Thailand

"A comedy sensation..." Croatian National Television

and your MC

Jan Maree
Originally from the Hutt Valleys foreshore paradise Petone, 2001 Billy T Award winning comedian Jan Maree has been described as a chauvinists nightmare and the thinking mans wet dream.

She has also been called other things, as seen most recently as a guest roaster on The Comedy Central Roast of Mike King, the first to be staged outside of the U.S. Exceptionally good at being herself, Jan won hearts whilst surviving on TV2s Island Wars and as a subject painted by Auckland artist Marty Welch for TV6s The Sitting.

A one-girl whirlwind looking for somewhere to happen, Jans quick wit and energy make her a most talented MC and live event host. Our regular MC at The Cook, Jan also hosts awards night events, proudly the MC three years and running of Aucklands AMI Showdown Awards, The ACTT Awards, Hamiltons Phoenix Awards and Taurangas Rocket Business Awards. Jan adds to that, as a capable and entertaining Wedding MC.

Not to go on about things, but Jan also runs JMX: the Jan Maree eXperience, touring comedy throughout the North Island of NZ which was recognised with the Presidents Trophy for services to comedy in 2009. To also take home the best female comedian gong that same year cements Jans ability to relate to any crowd in any venue and places her firmly in the premier ranks of kiwi comedy.

Jan Maree has gone on to carve an unusual niche: with her stand-up/cooking hybrid, she has fondly become known as the drinking mans Nigella Lawson. In 2007, she regaled capacity crowds with Eat Me, earning a nomination for Best Local Show at the NZICF Award, an award she proudly won in 2009.
