7 Days com­ing back to city

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - MIRI SCHROETER

Co­me­dian Jeremy Cor­bett plans to take the rest of the 7 Days cast on a grand tour of Palmer­ston North dur­ing a na­tional tour of live shows.

On De­cem­ber 1, the cast, in­clud­ing Dai Hen­wood and Paul Ego, will be at the Re­gent at­tempt­ing to make Palmer­sto­ni­ans laugh.

The tour is visit­ing 11 cen­tres, and while Cor­bett said the crew were keen to re­place Palmer­ston North for a new lo­ca­tion, he con­vinced them that once again the city would have the best crowd.

‘‘It’s al­ways a good time and I’m al­ways re­ally proud.’’

Cor­bett grew up in Palmer­ston North - learn­ing his trade of mak­ing peo­ple chuckle at Massey Univer­sity.

In pre­vi­ous years he tried to or­gan­ise a guided tour but was al­ways left rid­ing solo in the van, he said.

The oth­ers were miss­ing out on great sights such as the Hokowhitu La­goon, the Vic­to­ria Es­planade and Massey Univer­sity, Cor­bett said.

The small city was a great place to start his ca­reer as it was a wel­com­ing and nur­tur­ing in­cu­ba­tor, Cor­bett said.

From Palmer­ston North it was then eas­ier to tran­si­tion to Wellington and Auck­land, he said.

Ego, Hen­wood, Ben Hur­ley, Josh Thom­son, Jeremy El­wood and Jus­tine Smith will join the tour.
