    On the road again – Michele and Jeremy’s AOTNZ tour – 1 Feb - 9 March 2019.
    Michele and Jeremy have been performing comedy around the country – and around the globe – for over 20 years.
    Regular guests on Radio New Zealand’s The Panel, they also feature on TV shows such as 7 Days and The Project, while their co-written weekly column for the Christchurch Post also features on Stuff.co.nz
    Insightful as well as outrageously entertaining, they’ve appeared at festivals around the world, from Adelaide to Edinburgh, and are regulars at the NZ International Comedy festival.
    Michele enjoyed huge success when she toured ‘Stuff I Forgot to Tell My Daughter’ with AOTNZ in 2016. This time it will be stuff the couple tell each other – intelligent yes, but mostly impudent, irreverent uplifting fun.

    BOOK NOW

    Manfred Mann, aka The Manfreds were one of the finest, most respected British Invasion groups of the 1960’s. Before breaking up in 1969, with Paul Jones until 1966 then Mike D’Abo as lead singers, the band had a string of huge hits, all enduringly memorable songs, including 5-4-3-2-1, Do Wah Diddy Diddy, Pretty Flamingo, and Ha Ha Said The Clown.

    The other original members were Tom McGuinness (guitar), Mike Hugg (drums) and Mann (keyboards). As The Manfreds, the original band reformed in 1991 with both charismatic lead singers, Jones and D’Abo, at the helm plus McGuinness and Hugg, but not Manfred.

    The Manfreds return to New Zealand in 2019 to perform all their much loved hits one last time by the original singers
