Laugh Loudest! Win tickets to 'Last Laugh'

Thursday 10 April 2008

Competition Ends: Monday 5 May 2008

This is an opportunity to celebrate with the comedians as we bid farewell to another fantastic NZ Comedy Festival.

Hosted by one of NZ's most respected live comedians Mr Jeremy Corbett. See final performances from the 2008 BILLY T and THE FRED Award nominees, before the winners are announced plus a host of Festival's Awards.

The 2008 Billy T Nominees are Grant Lobban, Jim Brown, The Lonesome Buckwhips, Simon McKinney and Steve Wrigley.

THE FRED Award is named in honour of ex-pat comedy icon John Clarke's Kiwi character Fred Dagg. The award celebrates comedy excellence with a $3,000 travel grant prize. Past recipients include Brendhan Lovegrove (2006) and Dai Henwood (2007).

FRED Award Nominees will be posted on The Hive's news section in the final week of the Festival . . . stay tuned.

Both the Billy T Award and THE FRED are initiatives of the NZ Comedy Trust to develop and sustain live comedy in NZ and to export kiwi comedy abroad.

The Hive have three double passes to give away to Last Laugh, thanks to the NZ Comedy Festival. To be in to win tell us who, of the whole NZ Comedy Festival line up (internationals included), you think should win a 'Comedian of the Year' award (if such an award existed) and why.

To enter, write your 'Comedian of the Year' explanation in the Comments section for this event.
