"Funny As" WORD Christchurch
8:00 - 9:00pm
From Billy T. James to Rose Matafeo, Fred Dagg to Flight of the Conchords, New Zealanders have made each other laugh in ways distinctive to these islands. The recent documentary series Funny As is a loving and hilarious tribute to the people who have made the scene what it is today. Join its producer Paul Horan and writer Philip Matthews, authors of the companion book Funny As, along with movers and shakers of the New Zealand comedy scene, including Madeleine Sami and others to be announced, to hear the stories, share the laughs, and watch outtakes that for one reason or another didn’t quite make the show.
