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 worked with Bill Bailley in Jakarta.

"One of New Zealands finest comedy exports…irresistibly funny!" Mark Ritchie - The Stage (UK)
"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)

Alan McElroy:
After temporarily paralysing his mother during child birth with his unusually large cranium, Dubliner Alan McElroy dragged his heavy noggin around, accumulating scratches and scrapes from the ground and the carpet burn from the never ending sand paper like floor covering that devoured Ireland in the 1980s. As the Old Country moved into the '90s, so did the floor covering material. Heavily influenced by home decorating television shows, the wooden floors had Alan looking like a shunned, unkempt hedgehog because of the countless splinters stuck in his head.

It took 28 years before Alan grew into his own mallet-of-head and was finally able to leave Ireland and fly to New Zealand, without being forced to pay a large extra baggage fee.

'Best Newcomer' - 2010 NZ Comedy Guild Awards

“if it's the best of the new talent you're after, look no further than Alan McElroy…while the mic's in Alan's hand there's no chance of getting bored.” Concrete Playground

Matt Stellingwerf:
2012 Raw Comedy Quest semi-finalist, Matt Stellingwerf is a fast rising star on the New Zealand comedy scene, and highly regarded by his peers. Matt has won four NZ Comedy Guild Awards, been nominated for several others, and was nominated as Best Newcomer at the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival, and is a 2015 Billy T Nominee.

Hamilton-born and Wanganui-raised farmer's son and trained criminologist, an award-winning bar fly...and genuinely lovely guy, Matt Stellingwerf is a man of contradictions.

He expertly brings these contradictions to the stage with his typical low-key style and confidence, finding the humour in topics as diverse as love, mental illness, sex, drugs, and this crazy interview he once conducted with a serial killer on Death Row!

Matt now brings a worldview inspired by alcoholic shearing gangs, bizarre Dutch relatives, and criminological theory to the stage and attempts to answer some of life's enduring mysteries. So come along, grab a brew, have a laugh and remember...lower expectations make it better for everyone!
