It’s time to feed the Bears again! The hugely popular comedy show celebrating LYC Bear New Zealand Week and Auckland Pride is back at The Classic for the third year in a row!
Starring “The Capital’s Funniest Bear” Neil Thornton and an all-star line-up of New Zealand’s best LGBT and LGBT-friendly comics, including “the little gay rock-star of New Zealand comedy” Eli Matthewson, and some familiar faces from TV3’s 7 Days.
Neil Thornton is a comedian from New York who tours all over New Zealand and the world. In the US, Neil was the producer of New York’s first all-bear comedy revue, Funny. Furry. Fierce, and MAULED: The Bears of Comedy at Provincetown Bear Week.
Eli Matthewson is a 2015 Billy T Award nominee, has featured on TV3’s 7 Days and AotearoHA, and is a core writer and cast member of Jono and Ben and Funny Girls.
Always an incredibly side-splitting night, with pre-show drinks from 7pm. Bears have been known to suffer from hyperventilation, so bring a paper bag just in case.
