Dave Thompson


Imagine all the cat videos fired into your mind by a device from the future.  Well that’s Dave Thompson.  Surrender to your dreams as he manifests words, that take you to the dawn of our collective soul.
Dave was inside the Tinky Winky costume in the cult TV show ‘Teletubbies’.  And then he got weirder.
“One of the best comedians on the comedy circuit.” Stewart Lee.
“Mad comic brilliance.” Ben Elton.
“The weirdest dude on the face of the earth”. (TIME OUT).

Matt Stellingwerf


Matt has dominated the comedy stages of New Zealand for the last five years, winning four NZ Comedy Guild Awards, including Best Newcomer, the much coveted Billy T Award, and been nominated for several others. He trained as a criminologist, he is also an award-winning bar fly, a genuinely lovely guy, and a man full of contradictions. He expertly brings these contradictions to the stage, with his typical low-key style and confidence, finding the humour in topics as diverse as love, mental illness, sex and  drugs

Mark is an exceptional one-liner comedian. It won him a place in Dave’s prestigious Best Joke of The Fringe in Edinburgh 2017. His solo show at the festival, One-Linerer was also a huge hit, with sell out shows every day and was nominated Best Show by the Amused Moose Comedy Award Fringe Show 2017.
