Who are Danny McChrystal and Reuben Lee - and what is their show about?
Danny McChrystal and Reuben Lee are:
Come see two Brits work their way through any subject under he sun, delivering a show shwer no subject is too uncomfortable for the boys from the North. Full English, full laughs.
Featuring two award-nominated comedians, this is a great new show being launched at this year's International Comedy Festival.
Danny McChrystal and Reuben Lee are both ex-pats from northern England and are two sides to the same hilarious coin.
They invite you and all of your friends to witness their take on any topic, where no matter how dark or controversial it may be, is off-limits.
"We're both in the offensive bracket," laughs Reuben.
From the confused ramblings of the Bible to the often painful experience of retail therapy, this is a show that will appeal to people of all nationalities whether you are a Kiwi, Brit or anyone who has settled in a new country.
"We like to do things that make the audience laugh but think a bit as well," Danny says.
Danny made it to the final of the RAW Comedy Quest at last year's festival and was nominated as 'best newcomer' at the recent NZ Comedy Guild Awards, where Reuben was also nominated twice for 'most offensive gag' and 'gag of the year'.
The boys will be joined by one of New Zealand's rising stars, Stella Graham as MC.
Over the five months leading up to the festival, they are also
being followed (some would say stalked) by an award-winning
film-maker producing a documentary about their 'road to the
festival', capturing all of the tears, laughter and stroppy fits
along the way.
Expect to see some exclusive footage from the documentary at the show.
