Covert Entertainment presents Improv 4 Kids

The Improv Bandits in an all ages show!

The Improv Bandits, New Zealand’s improv comedy sensation is performing a special family show in the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival.

The Improv Bandits have shared the stage with comedy heavyweights such as Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie (Whose Line Is It Anyway?), Dan Castenella (Homer from The Simpsons) and George Wendt (Norm from Cheers) and starred in the 2004, 2008 and 2009 NZ Comedy Gala.

Now they perform a show that Mum, Dad and the kids can enjoy together. The Improv Bandits are made up of eight of the best improv actors in the country headed by double world improv champion Wade Jackson. The Improv Bandits are Geoff Simmons, Greg Ward, Mark Scott, Matt Halliday, Michael Fletcher, Tony Gilbert, Tom Kane and Wade Jackson.

“We did a family show in 2012 and really missed not doing this year,” says founding member Wade Jackson. “I’ve had many requests so by popular demand it is back.”

Improvised comedy has a universal appeal and The Improv Bandits are masters of it. They’ve toured the world and delighted critics and audiences alike with their high-energy, fun show. They’re so good they actually make it look easy!

“It’s rare that comedy can appeal to both a young and mature audience,” says Mark Scott, long-time member of the Bandits and also stand up comedian. “Stand up usually involves adult themes and language whereas the humour in improv comes from the spontaneous nature of the stories created in an ensemble.”

Get the family together, Grandma and Grandpa too and come along for a laugh. The Improv Bandits will also be holding a special workshop for the kids after the show and teaching them some of the training exercises to improve mental flexibility.

The Improv Bandits - no scripts, no gimmicks, no safety net!
