(3) Heath Franklin's Chopper In Live From Anzakistan
As seen on TV3's Chopper's Republic of Anzakistan and 7 Days, NZ's biggest selling international comedian is back at the Napier Municipal Theatre tonight for one show only in his funniest outing yet.
After taking over the once great nations of Australia and NZ, rolled them into one, thrown out the bad bits, Chopper has created the world's newest superpower - Anzakistan.
And he's just the bloke to run it.
He may not have much experience, but at least you know where he stands ... right behind a moustache.
So join the revolution! At the Napier Municipal Theatre, Tennyson St, show starts at 7.30pm. Ticket Information: Buy Tickets - 0800 842538
