Billy T Jams
Catch the next Dai Henwood, Rose Matafeo or Cori Gonzalez-Macuer before they hit it big.
What do Dai Henwood, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer and Rose Matafeo have in common apart from being the most hilarious New Zealanders alive? They're all Billy T winners.
Every year the Billy T Award recognises New Zealand comedy's brightest up and coming stars, in honour of one of the funniest Kiwis of all time. Presented by the New Zealand Comedy Trust in association with Q Theatre, Billy T Jams is a chance for you to catch the next Dai, Rose or Cori before they hit it big and can only be seen on prime time TV.
This year the show is hosted by Australian funny man Matt Okine, and includes sets from the five nominees: Angella Dravid, Li'I Alaimoana, Patch Lambert, Paul Williams and Ray O'Leary. Expect a guest appearance from last year's winner David Correos, bringing his surreal and sarcastic style to the stage. This is a hilarious display of grass roots NZ talent, presented as part of the 2017 International Comedy Festival. Grab a ticket and get ready for a giggle.
