7 Days live head shere


Me­di­aWorks’ pop­u­lar com­edy show, 7 Days, hosted by Palmer­ston North’s Jeremy Cor­bett, is head­ing in this direc­tion.

With the cam­eras and stu­dio shut down for the year, the 7 Days A team has been bul­lied into a van to travel the length of New Zealand for 10 shows across Novem­ber and De­cem­ber.

7 Days will come alive at the Re­gent on Broad­way on Thurs­day De­cem­ber 1.

This time there’ll be no cam­eras, cen­sors, re­spon­si­ble adults or ed­i­tors so be pre­pared for a very en­ter­tain­ing night out that may not be en­tirely po­lit­i­cally cor­rect.

The show starts with a burst of quick fire stand-up, then a no-holds-barred game of 7 Days. Jeremy, Paul Ego, Dai Hen­wood, Urzila Carl­son, Ben Hur­ley, Jeremy El­wood and Josh Thom­son will en­ter­tain the au­di­ence with their take on the lat­est news.

Cor­bett started his com­edy ca­reer in Massey Uni­ver­sity cap­ping re­vues.

‘‘Palmy is a won­der­ful in­cu­ba­tor for would be co­me­di­ans. It let us ram­ble on about noth­ing and never threw rot­ten fruit,’’ he says.

‘‘And it still is. Ev­ery day the 7 Days pro­duc­ers worry if Palmer­sto­ni­ans will sup­port us and come and see the show,’’ says Cor­bett.

‘‘I tell them to put it on the itin­er­ary and ev­ery year Palmy blows their minds.

‘‘I have ab­so­lute faith that will be the case yet again.’’

Executive pro­ducer Jon Bridges says, un­like the Fri­day night tele­vised show, he can’t con­trol any­thing they say.

‘‘How­ever it’s won­der­ful to see the­atres full of peo­ple lov­ing our 7 Days co­me­di­ans live in per­son,’’ he says.

7 Days per­forms at the Re­gent on Broad­way on Thurs­day De­cem­ber 1. Book­ings at Tick­etDirect (0800-224-224).
