Check out the shows we can't wait for: 

Alexis Dubus - A History of Swearing 
23 April - 1 May 
One man’s attempt to discover why a handful of words in the English language still have the power to shock, offend and amuse in equal measure. Alexis uncovers the science of swearing, the ancestry of all your favourite swears and why the f*ck we do it in the first place. 

Wilson Dixon - Back Catalogue 
28 April - 5 May 
Wilson Dixon is back with a back catalogue of obscure songs and stories from his childhood, the distant past and some ancient family history. 

Guy Williams - Started from the Top 
23 April - 29 April 
This show aims to address gender and racial privilege in New Zealand in 2016. The key word is "aims", no refunds. That was a joke I probably would give you a refund if you really wanted it.

2013 – Winner Best Comedian, Metro 
2014 – Funniest Person, TV Guide 
2015 – Nothing! Still dark about it
