Nice that 100% proceeds go to Nepal via the Oxfam Earthquake Relief Fund.

From: Team at the NZ International Comedy Festival Subject: Comedy for Nepal and shows on this weekend
The New Zealand Comedy Trust and Q Theatre are putting on Comedy for Nepal - a fundraising showcase with proceeds going directly to Oxfam NZ's Nepal Earthquake Response.
The worst earthquake in 80 years ha s hit Nepal: buildings are flattened, thousands are injured, the death toll has exceeded 8000 and is rising every day. At this stage survivors are in a race against time to secure shelter and adequate sanitation before the monsoon rains begin in early June.
OxfamNew Zealand is there, delivering clean water, toilets, hygiene kits, food and shelter to thousands. The agency has been in Nepal for over 20 years and knows the community well.
The NZ International Comedy Festival has an incredible bunch of comedians, staff, venues and supporters that all wanted to contribute to Oxfam New Zealand's relief efforts in Nepal. It turns out what we can do is put on an awesome comedy show to raise money to support the Nepal Earthquake Response.
So please join us for a night of stand-up at Comedy For Nepal!
Performers on the night include: Jeremy Corbett, Wilson Dixon, (USA), Paul Ego, Ben Hurley, Justine Smith, Jarred Fell, Eddy Brimson & Rich Wilson (UK), Harley Breen (AUS), Tom Furniss, and more comedians to be announced.
Tickets are just $35 or groups 10+ are $30 each, with no booking fee. 100% of proceeds from ticket sales go to the Oxfam Earthquake Relief Fund.
Took a friend, and Alfie, for a walk around Hobsonville Point recently. We stumbled upon the Farmers Market (now in the old flying boat hangers by the boat ramp) and k9-doggy-deli’s “Bone Appetite” stall.
I must say I didn’t buy this. My American ‘cuz'sis’ treated Alfie to a puppy cup-cake: a Pup-cake. Maybe it was because I lugged her a bag of Butterfingers (not sold in NZ) all the way from the USA. How is that fair?
Pup-cakes are, to quote the website, “especially suited to your dog, made of 100% fresh ingredients” and it was packed in a cute little Pup-cake box.
Alfie certainly liked it. I was taking the first photo when a nose appeared. He extracted the goods, retreated to his basket, munch, munch, gone.
I’ve heard all their podcasts—so expected the typical Radiolab brilliance—but this video of the Radiolab Live tour is amazing. I heard the audio version on Sunday and just watched the video. If you have any interest in science and/or art you must see this.
Robert Krulwich and Jad Abumrad appear with comedians, musicians, video, that distinctive Radiolab audio mix and ‘live’ dinosaurs to tell of endings which changed our world.
Thanks to everybody who came out to see us on our 21-city tour! We had a blast, and we're so proud of how this show turned out. It's the best thing we've ever done on stage, which is why we're so excited to share a bunch of Apocalyptical video with you! If you didn't get a chance to catch the show in person -- or if you did and want to relive the cataclysmic glory and share it with your friends! -- feast your eyes on these live performances recorded in Seattle. You'll find incontrovertible proof that Robert Krulwich can shake it, that Jad Abumrad is a live-scoring, storytelling super-freak, and that a guitar, drum kit, and upright bass can summon the apocalypse. Plus: dinosaurs, death, destruction, and comedic mayhem. Enjoy
