The Big Show 2014 – An International Comedy Showcase
Bringing a new lease of laughs to iconic Wellington venue

Since 2005 ‘The Big Show’ has become one of the most popular shows in the annual NZ International Comedy Festival promising a line-up of 5 world class comedians each night in a 2 hour show.

With a choice of comedians, The Big Show promises something for all comedic tastes providing the ideal show for family, friends, workmates and the ‘social network’.

In 2014 productions will be bringing The Big Show to the Hannah Playhouse in Wellington for 5 nights only from Tuesday 29 April to Saturday, 3 May kicking off a huge 3 week programme of international live comedy at the iconic venue.

The 2014 line-up will be headed by;

John Robins (England) – A veteran of 5 Edinburgh Fringe fests – “One of the most naturally gifted comedians I’ve seen.” – Daily Telegraph UK

John Gordillo (England) – ‘One of comedy’s great thinkers. Heartfelt, intellectual or angry, he’s dynamite!’ - The Times

Michael Legge (Ireland) – "This is vitriolic observational stand-up at its finest ...The language is perfectly judged, with some beautifully splenetic turns of phrase. And the effect of all this impassioned negativity is, ironically, quite joyous."

Plus guest appearances by
Sara Pascoe (England) – “Pascoe's lively mind teases out big questions with intelligence, silliness and self-deprecation to make a near-perfect show” The Guardian UK

Tim Fitzhigham (England) – “Tim FitzHigham is unhinged. He is completely without hinges.” Eddie Izzard
