Comedy Night @ Wellington Civic Centre
There was a day of children’s shows at Wellington Civic Centre, now it’s time for an evening of comedy! Arrange a baby-sitter and grab your family and friends for a night of comedy at the Civic Centre.
An annual regular at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival, Daniel Townes is in town! Laconic and dry-witted with a warm onstage charisma, Australian stand-up comedian, Daniel Townes is known for his sharp one-liners, savage social commentary and dark-but-hilarious tales of his own failings. Society’s shortcomings and foibles — from the big questions of life through to the petty grievances of day-to-day existence — are neatly excised by his sharp, razor-edged wit and rapid-fire delivery, guaranteeing a ferocious hit rate of punchlines-per-minute.
“It takes real talent to summarise all our shortcomings as a society and still entertain an audience. Luckily, Daniel Townes is a very talented comedian.” The Music
Followed by Jacques Barrett after 12 years on the world’s comedy and festival circuit Jacques has cemented his position as a bona-fide international headliner. A quiet achiever, ever the underdog, known for his ability to throw relentless comedy blows. Weaving characters and impressions into barbed social commentary, showing the lighter side of much darker subject matter and leaving audiences thinking and laughing long after the curtains have closed.
“Impeccable comic timing and an endearing quality that only few comics possess.” West Australian
SEATING: Round tables of eight, patrons are encouraged to bring a picnic platter and the Civic Centre bar will be open throughout the evening to purchase drinks. So grab your friends and family and book your tickets or a table before they sell out!
