Co­me­di­ans in town

Au­di­ences warned to be ready for ‘‘a com­edy cav­ity search’’...

Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

Queen­stown and Wanaka are in for a laugh with top Kiwi co­me­di­ans stop­ping for two shows.

Paul Ego and Wil­son Dixon are trav­el­ling the South Is­land shar­ing their fun­ni­est jokes.

Event or­gan­iser Jade Gil­lies said tick­ets for the tour were sell­ing out fast.

‘‘Peo­ple love Paul’s hi­lar­i­ous ob­ser­va­tions of ev­ery­day life, which make him a crowd favourite, while Wil­son’s wry coun­try mu­sic com­edy is per­fectly suited for our au­di­ences,’’ she said.

A Kiwi com­edy vet­eran and reg­u­lar on Seven Days, Ego is known as a master of im­pro­vi­sa­tion.

‘‘Yes, there are more cock­tails up here, and even the ones without tails.

‘‘But I think we all know that the heart of New Zealand beats strong­est in the South,’’ he said.

‘‘I can’t wait to help open the fa­cial laugh holes of many of the fine peo­ple of the big is­land.

‘‘I hope they’re ready for a com­edy cav­ity search.’’

From Crip­ple Creek, Colorado, coun­try mu­si­cian Dixon’s philoso­phies on life have seen him be­come one of the most loved char­ac­ters on the Aus­tralian, UK and New Zealand cir­cuit.

Stand up comic Terry Frisby will be join­ing the two on the tour as an MC.
