Co­me­di­ans com­bine for in­au­gu­ral Globe Com­edy Club

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR EVENTS AND ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE -

The Globe is the venue for an un­for­get­table night of wit and one­lin­ers as five of New Zealand’s top co­me­di­ans join to­gether for the in­au­gu­ral Globe Com­edy Club.

The five co­me­di­ans – MC Vaughan King, Ray­bon Kan, Jerome Chan­dra­hasen, Co­hen Hol­loway and or­gan­iser/per­former Sera Dev­cich – per­form at The Globe on Satur­day, April 2 at 8pm.

The Com­edy Club will be hosted by Billy-T nom­i­nee, Vaughan King, owner of Welling­ton’s com­edy hot spot VK’s Com­edy and Blues Bar. His awards in­clude Best MC and most of­fen­sive gag, so the au­di­ence is in safe hands.

Ray­bon Kan has been voted New Zealand’s Best Co­me­dian twice in both Metro Mag­a­zine and North & South.

He’s fea­tured in David Hart­nell’s Top Ten Worst Dressed. A for­mer lawyer, Ray­bon has per­formed ma­jor com­edy fes­ti­vals in Mon­treal, Ed­in­burgh and Mel­bourne.

His book, An Asian at My Ta­ble, which in­cludes ad­ven­tures such as be­ing a con­tes­tant on the Amer­i­can game show, Wheel of For­tune, is avail­able on Ama­zon Kin­dle.

Jerome Chan­dra­hasen is a reg­u­lar MC and per­former on the New Zealand com­edy scene and has taken part in mul­ti­ple NZ Com­edy Fes­ti­vals. He’s won the Peo­ple’s Choice Award and has ap­peared on TV2’s Christ­mas Com­edy Cracker hosted by Rhys Darby.

Co­hen Hol­loway is Mr Funny Him­self.

He’s one of this coun­try’s top stand-up co­me­di­ans and a familiar face on TV and films. He was the orig­i­nal swear­wolf from What We Do in the Shad­ows, he’s cur­rently ap­pear­ing as Tama in Find Me a Maori Bride and is soon to be seen in Taika Waititi’s fea­ture movie Hunt for the Wilder Peo­ple.

Sera Dev­cich is the new kid on the block. She’s per­formed along­side Ben Hur­ley and Urzila Carlson and is quickly be­com­ing some­one to look out for. Sara’s com­edy is giv­ing white girls the bad rep­u­ta­tion they prob­a­bly de­serve.

‘‘With a line-up like this and only lim­ited seats, you’d bet­ter get in quick,’’ the Com­edy Club say.

The Globe Com­edy Club per­form on Satur­day, April 2 at 8pm. Book tick­ets via The Globe web­site.
