NZ International Comedy Festival - the Wellington shows

2007 NZ International Comedy FestivalWhen I first arrived in Wellington the annual Comedy Festival was going great but the, one year, it was all pulled back to Auckland only - aaarggh! But, sloooowly they've been extending it back out to the rest of the country and this year it's been held in Auckland and Wellington and with a nationwide tour of those that are up for it (big ups to Ed Byrne).

My picks for the Wellington leg (7th-26th May):
- Andrew McLelland's Mix Tape (Australia)

- Dylan Moran (Ireland)

- Flywheel, Shyster and Flywheel ()

- Jeremy Elwood (NZ)
