Tony Lyall is a comedian from a country called 'New Zealand', and he is coming to Australia for the first time with a hand picked selection of the finest jokes ever written! (by him)

Having performed in 4x New Zealand International Comedy Festival solo shows, Tony has combined the best bits off all of them into a greatest hits mega mix, that promises to bring the heat. As well as being a stand up comedian, Tony is a reporter and head writer for New Zealand's version of The Project, is part of the much loved Alternative Commentary Collective and is the regular Match Day MC for the Black Caps cricket team.

Originally from Blenheim in the South Island, Tony now lives in West Auckland with his wife, three kids and his Mazda Demio.
