Rado and Raybon save the world - AOTNZ tour March 2018. @ Whitianga Town Hall, 24 Monk Street, Whitianga, The Coromandel

Leading comedians Nick Rado and Raybon Kan have separate slots in the first half of the show, then come together in the second to solve problems suggested by the audience. And if the audience doesn’t come up with enough burning issues of the day, they’ll offer their own! They guarantee the world won’t end during the show.

Award winning presenter, producer, writer and MC as well as comedian Nick Rado has performed stand-up comedy to critical acclaim in the UK, US, China, Australia and NZ as well as performing in the Edinburgh, Leicester, Brighton, Bath, Hong Kong and NZ comedy festivals. He’s looking forward to jousting with Raybon on this upcoming tour.

“Crowd pleasing buffoonery at its best.” – Three Weeks, Edinburgh Festival
“Charm, timing, originality and above all, funny, Rado has it all.” - Headliners Club, London

Raybon Kan:
Born in Masterton and moving at an early age to Wellington after his family moved to NZ, Raybon Kan showed early promise as a performer, becoming School Council President while at high school and captaining Victoria University to second place in the World Universities Debating championships, only pipped at the post by Oxford University.
