Covert Entertainment presents The Improv Bandits & The Eliminator.

NZ’s #1 improvised comedy act gives you double the fun!

The Improv Bandits, New Zealand’s improv comedy sensation is performing two different shows in the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival.

The Improv Bandits are performing their traditional high-energy show that has seen them share 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 star in the 2004, 2008 and 2009 NZ Comedy Gala.

They are also performing in The Eliminator, a hilarious romp where they will be directing each other in improvised scenes trying to win enough Oscars from the audience to achieve the coveted position of Best Director. The audience scores each directed time-limited scene either an Oscar (if they liked it) or Lemon (if they didn’t like it). The director with the most Oscars at the end of the night “eliminates” the other directors with a high-powered water gun.

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.

For some people the fear of death is more welcoming than performing in front of others – The Improv Bandits go out on stage having no idea what they’re going to do and say next! Constantly revolving the cast keeps the show fresh for the cast and audience alike.

The recipe for The Improv Bandits success is how they work together as a team. With a motto of “no scripts, no gimmicks, no safety net!” they can’t afford to let egos and imaginations battle on stage. The Improv Bandits have the reputation as one of most exciting comedy shows ever to come out of New Zealand. Be sure to catch their shows!
