Sketch/Comedy II with Hadley Donaldson

It’s sketchier! It’s comedyier! Sketch/Comedy is back for Sketch/Comedy II. A whole new line up of the capital’s top stand up comedians combine with one of New Zealand’s sharpest cartoonists for a spontaneous mix of stand up and visual comedy.

Sketch/Comedy is the creation of cartoonist/designer Hadley Donaldson. With no rehearsal Hadley illustrates jokes and stories on the fly. The comedians have no idea what will be drawn, and Hadley has no idea what they’re going to say, combining to make a unique never before seen show.

Hadley was the lead illustrator on Picture This! in the 2013 Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival and discovered he had a knack for the rapid off the cuff visual riffing involved. He worked with many comedians across more than 40 shows, including Pete Holmes (The Pete Holmes Show), Michael Che (The Daily Show, SNL), Paul Provenza (The Aristocrats, The Green Room w/ Paul Provenza, Set List), Ronnie Chieng, Claire Hooper and many more.

MC for the evening is the award winning Jonny Potts. A veteran of the NZ International Comedy Festival and winner of best comedy and best writing in the 2015 NZ Fringe.
