7:30PM Saturday, 11 July, 2020 NZST  at  Ashburton Trust Event Centre, Ashburton
**POSTPONED** new date tbc - Comedy Festival 2020

To brighten up your mid-winter evenings, ATEC is bringing to you, a most delectable platter of comedic talent!

A delicious selection of four stand up performances that will leave you sore from laughter. This stellar line-up includes the incredibly talented and well-known Michele A’Court, Ben Hurley, David Correos and our very own Bec Sandys.
This will be an unmissable extravaganza of pure comedy at its best. It sold out fast in 2019, so be sure to secure your tickets.

Michele A'Court
Winner of Female Comedian of the Decade at the 2010 NZ Comedy Guild Awards, Michele A’Court is a busy stand-up comedian, freelance writer and is a regular on radio, TV and her column with Jeremy Elwood in the Dominion Post.
Ben Hurley
Ben has conquered the toughest of crowds and reviewers alike and is adept at tailoring his material and persona to what the event requires. 2020 sees Ben continuing as Head Writer for 7Days and bringing a brand new solo show to the NZ International Comedy Festival
David Correos
Winner of the 2016 Billy T Award, David is quickly becoming a powerhouse of New Zealand comedy. He has a uniquely powerful, boundary pushing style which has made him an audience favourite whenever he performs.
Bec Sandys
Bec has stormed onto the NZ Comedy scene using her own brutally honest and hilarious story-telling. Drawing on her colourful palette of life experiences, she paints a picture of life as it truly is: up and down, absurd, and bloody funny. A natural performer, this Ashburton native opened for Urzila Carlson at the Christchurch Town Hall, has been a regular on The Project’s Whip Around, and is set to debut her solo show in 2020.
