Rado and Raybon save the world - AOTNZ tour March 2018

Published: Tue 30 Jan 2018 10:54 AM
Raybon Kan (Winner Metro Best Comedian, columnist and three-time winner of 'Test the Nation’) combines comedy forces with Nick Rado (Guest Panellist & Head Writer for TV3's '7 Days’, Just For Laughs Sydney, The Comedy Channel, Australia) tour New Zealand's small towns for the month of March in their live show 'Rado & Raybon Save The World.'
The first half of the show sees the duo rock the house with their individual stand up comedy; and in the second half they take the stage together to solve problems raised by that night's audience -- anything from world politics, new roundabouts, to overpriced paninis. There's no issue too big or too small that Raybon and Rado won't dare to rescue. They are comedy paramedics. When there's something wrong in your neighbourhood, who ya gonna call? Rado & Raybon!
