2016 Fred Award Winner returns to the same place, same time.

A brand new show from Rhys Mathewson, winner of the prestigious Fred Award for Best NZ Show at last year's Festival, in the same room as last year when he won the Fred Award for Best Show, at the same time as last year when he won the Fred Award for Best Show.

He won't go on about it.

Winner - Fred Award 2016

"...strong material, a winning charm and some vicious risque one-liners - coupled with some very intelligent and genuinely funny stuff..."

"Mathewson is now the youngest ever recipient of the Fred Award (as well as being the youngest ever recipient of the Billy T six years ago) and it solidifies him as one of New Zealand's best comedians, of any gender, of any age group."
