Comedians dive into dangerous territory
Is Queenstown ‘‘rural’’ enough to be included in a new New Zealand tour by three of our finest comedians? Or is it a miniAuckland? So asked the Mirror. Ben Hurley responds: ‘‘I was served by a horse at Winnie Bagoes once. She was nice but definitely rolled her Rs like they do in Southland. Needless to say the Margarrrrita pizza was excellent. Apart from that, it’s just like Auckland.’’
Dai Henwood says: ‘‘To me it is amini awesome. I amaware that there is mountains and scenery but I have been there every winter for 10 years and never seem to make it out of the town.’’
The men will be joined by Vaughan King and a highly provocative mechanical bull when they bring the 2015 Fresh-up Comedy Tour to Queenstown.
And while not performing they will be living dangerously.
Henwood promises he will visit all the ‘‘adventure spots – Madame Woo’s, Winnies, Botswana Butchery and a few I am yet to discover’’.
More dangerous territory would be the telling of sheep jokes, suggests Hurley.
‘‘They don’t exist in New Zealand. They were made illegal during the Muldoon government because they thought it would affect exports.’’
According to their press release you shouldn’t miss the opportunity see them up close.
‘‘The regret would tear a hole in your heart so big you may selfimplode into a supernova of selfdisgust. True story.’’
However, Hurley adds that if you’re a dickhead who hates fun, don’t bother.
