What is Trikes?
Presented by Steven Boyce, Urzila Carlson and Jarred Fell
A showcase of NZ comedy's best newcomers
There's 'ha ha' funny. There's 'ROFL' funny (google it). And there's 'snigger turned snort' funny. But comedians Urzila Carlson, Jarred Fell and Steven Boyce would like to think of themselves as 'knights of the triangle table' funny after being crowned New Zealand comedy's best newcomers.
Urzila Carlson was released from South Africa in 2006, where she is believed to have once made a turkey giggle. After bragging about this to her new kiwi mates, they dared her to enter the RAW comedy quest. She made it to the finals and decided to stick to the funny business. Mainly so she could brag back to her mates. And rightly so, because she's already won the NZ Comedy Guild's
Best Newcomer award and the Andrew Kovacevich Cup.
Steven Boyce is an "up and coming hot shot and Tom Cruise lookalike with a delightful Fro". This will be his 3rd year of comedy festivals, his 2nd year of Uni and his 2nd year on the pro circuit& he thinks. One thing he is sure about is receiving a Highly Commended at the 2008 Raw comedy quest finals and nomination for the NZ Comedy Guild's Best Newcomer award.
Jarred Fell, magician extraordinaire. After only two years on the comedy scene, he's received many ROFL ovations. It turns out if you excel at a bunch of hobbies like acting, singing and dancing, just combine them together into one performance along with magic and alla-kazaam! You've got an entertaining comedy extravaganza that wins you a finalist at the 2008 RAW comedy quest and nomination for the NZ Comedy Guild's Best Newcomer award. If he works on his magic, he could make Trikes a sellout!
You wouldn't dare miss these three together live! Why? 'Cause trikes are cool.
