Sponsoring 7 Days to come to Ashburton!

Posted by / December 6, 2017 / Categories: News / -

“What if you could have all the fun of New Zealand’s most popular ever TV comedy show, but instead of them being on a tiny screen, they were right in front of you, in real life? And what if there were no cameras or censors or advertisements, just full-on comedy with Dai, Paul and Jeremy, right there in ten towns around the country? And what if you could watch it with your mates, and with a drink of something?”

It’s this sort of blue-sky brilliance that sparked the idea of the 7 Days Live tour five years ago, a tour that has grown and grown each year. See Dai Henwood, Jeremy Corbett, Paul Ego, Ben Hurley, Josh Thomson, Jeremy Elwood and Justine Smith as they smash out a quick-fire burst of standup comedy brilliance before unleashing a no-holds-barred 7 Days show that you won’t forget.

Normally a show of this scale would only visit capital cities. We are pleased to sponsor this show, helping bring 7 Days to the Ashburton Trust Event Centre. We hope to see you at this sold out show!
