Comedy at its best

by Ann van Engelen

It is said that Sir Tim Shadbolt and Gary McCormick are carved from the material that heroes are made and the duo is bringing their humour to Selwyn for a night of comedy at the Hororata Glentunnel Golf Club on Monday, October 31.

“Gary and Tim are doing a tour of golf courses around the country. We are really excited to have them coming to our club as our venue is the hub of the community, not just a destination for golfers,” says organiser Catherine Thorne.

“We provide a variety of events, not just golf and appreciate the support we get. We host national iconic performers and little local sports clubs that need people to keep going into the future.”

ln the run-up to the local body elections, Sir Tim saddled up his electoral horse and took to the highways and byways of New Zealand to explain his ‘greater vision’ for the country.

“From way back in the sixties, when I wrote Bullshit and Jellybeans, I think I have had my fingers on the pulse of the nation, and I am cheeking it out again in a series of comedy shows with Gary,” says Tim.

The McCormick and Shadbolt Comedy Show is a rough and tumble debate in the manner of the old-style political meetings from the last century when it was not necessary to be polite.

“With Tim being elected as mayor for the ninth time the ‘a new Knight for a new day’ show is nicely timed,” says Catherine.

“We are fortunate to be hosting Gary and Tim — come and join us for an evening of fun-filled entertainment and laughs. The entertainment kicks off at 7.30pm, and the bar opens at 6.30pm. For tickets are $50 each and include a light supper, call 027 538 5240 or email”
