Covert Entertainment presents Ferris Wheel

Revolutionary laughter at every turn.

Step up, step up, step right on up folks and have a good time. Witness the amazing Ferris Wheel, a brand new show from the Covert Theatre, NZ’s premier improvised comedy company. What makes this show so unique? This entire show is set at the top of the Ferris Wheel.

Ferris Wheel showcases in the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival and runs for 4 nights 14 – 17 May.

The show stars top Kiwi improv talent including members of The Improv Bandits and the Covert Theatre. Each show has 4 stories running, kind of like Pulp Fiction but with a lot less blood. 12 cast members stand on stage and the audience select the 4 groups of 3 improvisers. Then each group of 3 has 2-minute turns at the top of the Ferris Wheel. As the time runs out, the wheel turns and we see the next lot of characters at the top of the Ferris Wheel. When it has gone full rotation, the audience gets to see the previous characters return, with their story having move forward. By the end of the show, the audience would have witnessed four stories being improvised and woven in together. It’s amazing who ride a Ferris Wheel these days!

The show was created by the Covert Theatre and was born out of a workshop. The creator, Wade Jackson, founding member of the Covert Theatre stumbled on it by accident but as they say, there are no accidents in improv.

“This format is so satisfying for the performers and audience alike,” says Wade Jackson, the Covert Theatre’s Artistic Director. “You get to see a whole story told bit by bit and experience the joy of seeing stories having jumped forward in time as the actors ride the Ferris Wheel.”

This amazing show from the Covert Theatre will have you in stitches as you enjoy watching world-class improvised comedy. With improv, every show is different but what remains the same with the Covert is a great night full of laughs. Make sure you see this fun show that has all the fun of a carnival – without the rip-off sideshows.
