Banana (n) - Burlesque term for a house comic, probably derived from the description of anything crazy as "bananas." The "top banana" was the head comic, the "second banana" would fill in where needed, the "third banana" would be assigned to stooge duty, taking falls and getting pies in the face.

Rama (suffix) - A spectacular display or instance of what is indicated (i.e. BananaRama!)

We're back! Pop on your glad rags and get set for a night of comedy, burlesque and frivolity! Hailing back to the burlesque shows of old, where burlesque beauties and comical comedians shared the stage, BananaRama is here to put the fun back into funny and show everyone a good ol’ time.

Featuring some of NZ’s best vaudeville talent, a three piece live jazz band and laughs to boot, BananaRama will raise the roof of Uxbridge Creative Centre and shake out those chills on a cold, winter's night. Our last show in 2015 sold out in advance, so be sure to nab your tickets quick!
