A massive congratulations to new J&L’er Rose Matafeo for taking out this years The Billy T Award for her show ’The Rose Matafeo Variety Show’. ( click here for the review) at the 2013 NZ International Comedy festival.

Following a year of rave reviews around NZ and Australia, Michael Hurst is returning to the Basement Theatre with his solo show No Holds Bard before he unleashes at the Edinborough Fringe Festival in August.
No Holds Bard explores the inner workings of a deranged actor’s mind as he battles several ghosts of Shakespeare’s leading men , with hilarious and often profound results.
No Holds Bard will play at The Basement Theatre from June 4th -15th .
Having been there we can confirm his reputation as one of NZ’s top comedians is well deserved. It’s not just his wit, charm and anecdotes that had everyone in hysterics. His dance moves , squirrel impersonations and ability to ride an imaginary unicycle are just genius.
