Tour tops off the year
If you think the television show 7 Days is too rude, this will not be the show for you, says New Zealand comedian Paul Ego.
The 7 Days Live Tour is heading south, with a show at Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena tomorrow night.
The show will feature performances from comedians Dai Henwood, Jeremy Corbett, Paul Ego, Ben Hurley, Josh Thomson, Jeremy Elwood and Justine Smith.
Ego said the show would be edgy, unedited and ‘‘quite rude’’.
Half of the show will be standup performances from the comedians and the other half would be just like the television show, but without the cameras.
It would be a chance to see the show ‘‘in the flesh’’ and without constraints or censors, he said.
Fellow comedian Dai Henwood said it would be ‘‘what everyone knows and loves about 7 Days’’.
Shows changed from city to city on the tour and they never knew what to expect, he said.
They would use local news, incorporate local figures and engage with the audience.
‘‘We make fun of every town in New Zealand. We’re always taking the p... but it’s not being mean. That’s what Kiwis do,’’ said Henwood.
‘‘That’s what people love about the show. It’s a good laugh, people like to take the mickey.’’
It would be ‘‘raw in all its glory’’ and people should expect the unexpected, he said.
‘‘It caps off the year for me. The vibe of the night is really fun.’’
Henwood added that the performers were quite an eclectic bunch.
‘‘We’re all quite unusual ... we’re very interesting people and enjoy interesting things.’’
❚ Tickets for tomorrow night’s 7.30pm show are available from TIcketek.
