This will be the Tony® and Emmy Award® winning comedian, actor, producer, writer, director and nine times Oscar host’s very first time performing in New Zealand. Tickets are on sale now for what promises to be a hilarious evening of comedy with Billy Crystal and special guest, Andrew Denton.
“I’m absolutely delighted to bring my new show to New Zealand. I have visited this beautiful country before but I am particularly excited to perform there for the very first time”
“The show will be spontaneous, funny and unpredictable. I tell stories, I perform, we show film clips. It’s not only a conversation with Andrew, it’s with the audience as well.” Crystal said.
This evening of comedy will be Billy Crystal’s first performances in New Zealand. The last time Crystal toured was with 700 Sundays across the USA and Australia. It was a triumph - resulting in sold out shows, extra dates and Billy Crystal winning a Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event.
A brilliant, insightful stand-up comic turned television star, Crystal found fame as a movie funnyman with starring roles in blockbusters such as When Harry Met Sally alongside Meg Ryan, City Slickers and Analyze This with Robert de Niro. Also an award-winning author, Crystal’s latest memoir, Still Foolin' 'Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys? was an instant NY Times bestseller.
Billy Crystal is much loved around the world, having been seen by an audience of billions as the nine-time host of the Oscars, an achievement topped only by Bob Hope! Crystal’s popularity, perfectly judged observations, humour and bonhomie made him the perfect anchor for the Academy Awards and brought him two Emmy Awards and a permanent place in people’s hearts.
