Suffering from comedy withdrawal? Well, just because the NZ International Comedy Festival is over, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of opportunities to find your daily dose of laughs.

One way to do so is by attending the all-star comedy night being put on by the Uxbridge Theatre on Friday the 16th of June!

Following the success of their first comedy night, the Uxbridge Theatre, situated in East Auckland, has pulled together an impressive line-up of local comedy acts for a night that you’d be crazy to miss.

The acts performing include headliner Wilson Dixon, up-and-comer Lana Walters, and Billy T Award winner Angella Dravid. The trio is joined by 7 Days head-writer Nick Rado as MC.


Wilson Dixon

Hailing from Cripple Creek Colorado, country music legend, Wilson Dixon’s melodic philosophies on life have seen him become one of the most loved characters on the Aust, UK and NZ circuit. He has had sold out season’s at The New International Comedy Festival and has won awards for “Best Show” and in 2010 he won the supreme Festival Award “The Fred” for outstanding artistic achievement and is headlining at Uxbridge this June.

Lana Walters

Lana Walters is the fresh face to the NZ Comedy Scene following her success in the 2016 Raw Quest where she made the Grand final. One to watch out for!

Angella Dravid

2017 Billy T Award-winning comic Angella Dravid explores the unexpected. Her material is often absurd, and her stage presence unpredictable. Not to be missed if you like your comedy dark, unique, and strange.

Nick Rado

Fresh from opening for Danny Bhoy’s nationwide NZ tour and an impressive run at the NZ International Comedy Festival, multi-award winning presenter, writer, MC and stand-up Nick Rado (7 Days) is one of New Zealand comedy’s most respected MC’s.
