Co­me­di­ans dive into danger­ous ter­ri­tory

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA NEWS -

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.
