Win tickets to see kids comedy festival
Kids can get in on the laughs at the International Comedy Festival for the first time this year.
The festival line-up includes three shows dedicated to children, featuring stand-up comedy, animation and puppets.
Comedians Jamie Bowen, Dave Wiggins, Janey Godley, Mickey D and others will clean up their act for the Stand Up For Kids series from April 24 to May 3.
In Men of Steel, top Australian puppeteers take two gibbering cookie cutters on a mad, messy tour of the kitchen. The show, performed at the Edinburgh and Dublin fringe festivals, starts in Auckland on April 29.
Big Howard and his animated sidekick feature in Little Howard and the Magic Pencil of Life and Death.
The show by comedian Howard Read combines stand-up with 3D animation and songs.
Little Howard opens next Tuesday and runs for six nights.
All performances in the Nickelodeon Kids Comedy Season are at Auckland’s Herald Theatre.
