Ivo Graham tour dates
Carey Marx's wilful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places.
Formerly in double-act 'Kez and Jodi', a comedy illusion act. Live wire, Canadian comedy magician. Winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival 2009, he blends dark humour with a mischievous, gleeful delivery,

'Hilariously demented' (Edinburgh Evening News)
'Excellent' (The Guardian)
'He is a masterful stylist, gracefully switching from surrealism to sardonic irony' (Skinny Fest)
'Anecdotally debauched... But if his lines are frequently sick, they're elegantly written, too, and there's a childlike glee to his naughtiness' (The Herald)
'A darkly comic Quentin Tarantino' (Chortle)
'Opium for the people' (Broadway Baby)
'supremely crafted comedy' (The List).
Carey Marx tour dates
Josh is the son of legendary PR guru Lynne Franks, the woman who inspired Jennifer Saunders’ character Edina in Absolutely Fabulous.
A comedian who intertwines surreal ideas with true comedic tales. His intellectual and non-offensive manner have made him a favourite across the country.
'A young Woody Allen' (Kate Copstick, The Scotsman)
'Excellent, intelligent stand-up... terrific' (Time Out).
Josh Howie tour dates
A great young comic from Adelaide, Australia.
'Having travelled all over the world to entertain people with his high energy persona, he has been awarded the Best International Guest two years running by the NZ comedy guild. Full of life and charisma he delivers his material with genuine fervour and has his audiences crying with laughter' (Funhouse Comedy)
'His material is all delivered with such bawling gusto that it's a joy to take in'
(Edinburgh Evening News).
