Billy T Nominees Announce Showcase Evening

The nominees for the 2015 Billy T awards will be given an early chance to showcase their comedic wit this Waitangi weekend at Q Theatre.

2013 Billy T award winner Rose Matafeo will host the evening, where each of the nominees Eli Matthewson, Hamish Parkinson, Matt Stellingwerth, Nic Sampson and Tim Batt will do a stand-up routine.

Last year's winner Guy Montgomery will be closing the evening.

Each nominee will also have their own solo show in this year's New Zealand International Comedy Festival, which runs from 24 April-17 May. Nominees will be judged on all aspects of their show, with the winner announced at Last Laughs on Sunday 17 May.

The annual Billy T award is named in honor of legendary NZ comedian Billy T James. The awards were established with the aim to recognise and support up-and-coming comedians.
