Clever and Constance Sing Songs For Grown-Ups ~ Fri 25 & Sat 26 February

CleverCon Louche cabaret celebrating First World Problems with satire and song. Featuring Clever Hansel and Constance Craving, two of Wellington's most tolerated cabaret performers. Clever Hansel has been charming Wellington audiences with his delightfully perverse brand of burlesque, music and twisted cabaret since 2009. Ukulele in hand, he's performed with artists such as Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley, and his pelvic gyrations have scandalised audiences at The Menagerie, Cabaret l'Amour, the Fetish Ball and the NZ Burlesque Festival (along with various dark alleys of the nation's capital). Hansel also performs as a member of The Klaus Vermillion Quartet, Wellington's only band of jazz con-artists. Constance Craving has been performing so long she used to have to write things with a pen. On a stone. Inexplicably popular as an EmCee for cabaret and burlesque shows, she has performed all over New Zealand as well as in Caburlesque, Cabaret l'Amour, The Menagerie, D.I.Y Burleskiwi and Burlesque Baby. Since first clapping eyes on one another, these two have been plotting a merger. No subject is taboo, no rhyme too excruciating, no harmony too close - it's no holes barred! Songs for Grown Ups will appeal to fans of Tom Lehrer, Noel Coward and the tone deaf. 8 pm - Both Nights

Super Awesome Comedy Explosion ~ Friday Feb 10 - Sunday Feb 12

Severin Gourley and JB Malthus Dramatic and electrifying, JB Malthus and Severin Gourley explode onto the stage to present some of Wellington's best young comics. With a different topic and a fresh lineup each night, JB and Sev will break the monotony of everyday life with a fun and unique comedy experience. Fresh-faced darling of the Wellington comedy scene, Severin Gourley delights audiences with witty insights into family, politics, and finding Bigfoot. After only a year performing stand-up, JB Malthus has proved he is a young comic to watch. His nerdy boy-next-door brand of comedy and Winston Churchill-good looks have been seen at Capital Comedy, Blindset, Fresh Bananas, and open mic nights on both the North and South Islands. From 8 pm, Friday 10, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 Feb

All I Wanted Was Some Chicken ~ Thursday 16 - Sunday 18 Feb

Award-winning comedian, Brad Zimmerman, was recently involved in an event that showed him the darker side of humanity. On a routine trip to a nearby bakery (to get some delicious fried chicken for lunch) his life flashed before his eyes. Join him on his journey of introspection, self-discovery, and utter surprise at some of the nonsense of which humans are capable. He saw things he never expected to see. He felt things he never expected to feel. And all he wanted was some chicken. Thurs 17, Fri 18 & Sat 19 February from 8 pm
