Jarred Fell is currently competing on NBC’s Bring The Funny TV show and will perform in the semi-finals next week.
Festival organiser David Parlane said Fell isn’t for the faint-hearted but is an outstanding performer through and through.
“He’ll have you scratching your head about what he just did on stage and you’ll be in hysterics at the same time.”
The comedy show will also feature Dai Henwood as the headlining act.
Up-and-coming acts will perform alongside Henwood, including NZ Comedy Guild newcomer and award-winning Irish comic Alan McElroy and Billy T Award nominee Donna Brookbanks.
Mr Parlane said it is one of the best line-ups in international comedy.
“Heading into our fourth year I believe the performers this time around are truly outstanding. It just gets better and better each year.”
Preparations for the show are going wonderfully and everyone involved is excited for the big night, Mr Parlane said.
“We’ve got a good team behind us and everything is on track to be a great night.”
