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).
