We're taking a break while the Meteor Theatre is renovated. Back mid-2017.
In the meantime, our resident MC Tim Muller has a show in the NZ International Comedy Festival, "Laugh Now, Google Later". Check it out if you're passing through Auckland in May.
Google has completely changed human society, giving instant access to a cast array of cat videos and "Which Disney princess are you?" quizzes.
But did you know that Google can also be used to find facts?
Tim does. He's so good at googling that he became a scientist! Come bask in his learning.
There will be a test.

Each time we do a show we get different folks to come along & say stuff.
Here's the October 2016 lineup.
Since he first set foot on stage in 2001, James has carved out a niche as New Zealand’s master of one-liner comedy.
His clean stylings have been enjoyed by audiences throughout New Zealand and Australia, and he has performed five solo shows at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival.
James was nominated for the prestigious Billy T Award for comedy in 2009, and has appeared on TV2's ‘Pulp Comedy’ and ‘A Night at the Classic’.
Scientist by day, comedian by night, quite good at making pancakes by morning; Tim will be pointing the microscope at everything from nursery rhymes to the UN Security Council in search of the hilarious truth. There won’t be any pancakes. I’m not sure why I even mentioned that. Also, the joke about the UN isn't a very good one, so he probably won't do that one if you come to see him.
Pax is regarded as one of the most exciting young acts in the country by his peers and audiences alike.
Pax was nominated for the Billy T Award in 2013 with only 2 years of comedy under his belt. He has gone on to appear on a number of local television shows Including TV One's panel show Word Up, TV 3s 7 Days, Maori TV's Crack Up and a regular on the critically acclaimed Brown Eye.
Born and raised in New Zealand and the son of immigrant parents, Pax brings a unique perspective that resonates with people of every background.
Pax's hectic blend of personal stories and insightful observations will have you pondering the big questions of life whilst simultaneously doubled over with laughter.
Tony delivers an engaging and unpredictable style of comedy that "digresses into any avenue but the one you’d expect". A confident slacker with an endearing nature, he takes the audience on a trip, even if he isn’t entirely sure where they will end up. Having recently featured in 2016 Next Big Things with Ben Hurley and in his own 2016 New Zealand International Comedy Festival show 'Comedians For Hire', Tony is definitely one to keep an eye on.
Bridget finds the surprising hilarity in a mix of day-to-day observations and honest, relatable experiences. She looks at the world in a way we all secretly do but won't admit.
Wash Your Mouth Out exists because we believe that swearing and smut are to comedy as steroids are to athletics. They do make it better, but they're still naughty and you shouldn't use them.
We're all about creating intelligent, engaging, resonant comedy that the whole family can enjoy. Even your grumpy old aunt Edna who is offended by the word "heck". OK, maybe not her, but everyone else.
Just in case you got the wrong idea, all that self-deprecating stuff was just joking around. We're actually really good at this.
What past audiences are saying
'Actual Lols! I laughed out loud a lot'' -Hamilton woman
'A fantastic line-up of some of New Zealand's top comedians ... this was the perfect recipe for laughter.' - The Speakeasy
'I arrived late but the roar of laughter from the crowd quickly let me know it was all going to be worth racing out after a day at work. Once again Comedy & the Meteor tickled our funny bones & had me & a generous gang of friends wiping tears from our eyes, chuckling all the way home & re-telling for days. We're ready to book tickets to the next one... what do we need to do to make this a regular thing!?' -another Hamilton woman
Once I made the entire Meteor Theatre make dog noises, and for some inexplicable reason they went along with it.
You're a crazy town, and I love you for it!
- Tim Müller -
The Meteor is a great venue in a great city. The audience gets a good show, and the performers have a fun on stage. That's all you can ask for at a comedy show, good times and good laughs, which the Meteor always provides.

Great venue, great staff and most of all, great audience.
If this was trademe, I'd definitely trade again. A+++
