Ben Hurley : Houses of the Holy Tour / Previews

Ben H2024

Two Nights Only / Upstairs in The Classic Studio - 1st fl ,321 Queen St

Local headliner, Ben Hurley, is hitting the 'rock'n'roll' road around NZ with a brand new show called 'Houses of the Holy'.

But not before he sorts his act out with a couple of 'Warmup' gigs in The Studio at the home of live comedy 

It has been said that Comedy is the new Rock n roll, but stand up comedy was also born in places like this. A place where Ben can fulfil childhood dreams of being a rockstar using his natural blessed talents of comedy. It is the Houses of the Holy Tour, where Ben Hurley and his opening acts will tour New Zealand’s most iconic music venues to fill them with hilarious jokes and banter.

These holiest of holy venues will succumb to the sharpest wit as they entertain audiences without any danger to their hearing, and less sweat than these walls generally see. More seating than ever, and still a gig you’ll be telling your mates about for years to come. Don’t miss out as Ben and his pals desecrate these venues in the best way possible, with heavy riffs of laughter and wailing solos that will leave you wanting more. Or you can go to another comedy show in a bourgeoisie theatre and celebrate another working class art form being sanitised and commercialised by the middle class! Revolution!
