Hope you’re well… thought I’d let you know how the shows are going now that I’ve officially opened. Had a great first night, sold out, the theatre is very big so my legs are hurting due to so much walking around the stage. Auckland is lovely as usual, I’m eating nice food and hanging out with nice people from the comedy festival.
On Thursday Night I did the 5 Star Comedy Preview at a 700 seater theatre and stormed it, then last night (Friday) I did the NZ Comedy Gala in the biggest theatre in New Zealand, it seats 2300 and the show was recorded for TV and will be going out next week.. I’ll be sure to send you the youtube link. It went really well, I had to do a very tight 4 minutes, so that was tough. I used Rove who was the host, he’s huge out here, their Jonathan Ross basically, tricked went very well, he was freaked out and wrote some nice stuff on twitter about it… so did Rhys Derby off of Flight Of the Conchords, he said ‘you were wonderful as usual! Go see Chris Cox!’ that’s pretty cool. I also got to meet the Ave Q puppets and got a photo with them and the make-up people said I had very good skin. I do realise these two things sound a bit gay. There are some photos here
So that’s it… a day off on Sunday then back to shows on Monday for my last week here before going out to Australia for a few weeks.. although there’s already talk of me returning here for a few extra shows at the end of the festival.
